2021 VICTORIAN SPORT AWARDS
The Victorian Sport Awards (VSAs) is the night of nights for the Victorian sporting community, an event that recognises and celebrates the achievements of our home-grown sporting heroes and legends.
Each year, the Victorian Sport Awards honours those who have made an exceptional contribution to sport in Victoria as an individual or team athletes, coaches, administrators, and volunteers from both metropolitan and regional areas in Victoria.
After the COVID-19 pandemic saw last year's VSAs moved fully online, this year will see the return of an in-person event at CENTREPIECE at Melbourne Park, the newest venue within the Melbourne & Olympic Parks precinct.
Twenty (20) awards will be presented, 19 of which can be nominated by the Victorian sporting community in addition to the most prestigious award of the night - the Victorian State Government Outstanding Contribution to Victorian Sport Award.
