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 individual or team athletes, coaches, officials, administrators, volunteers, media and clubs as well as initiatives that have kept people active, from both metropolitan and regional areas in Victoria.

Nominations were open in February for 18 awards and independent expert Judging Panels selected four (4) finalists, including one (1) award winner for each category.

Those finalists were announced on 17 April and winners will be revealed on the night of the Victorian Sport Awards, Wednesday 12 June.


Presentations for the 2023 Victorian Sport Awards will get underway from 7pm AEST on 12 June, 2024. You can watch via the live-stream below, courtesy of My Sport Live.

Alongside those 18 awards, the most prestigious honour bestowed at the VSAs, the Outstanding Contribution to Victorian Sport Award, is presented to an individual or organisation in recognition of outstanding achievement in, or contribution to, sport in Victoria.

For more than 50 years of service to sports medicine, nutrition and volunteering in a career that has spanned half a dozen sports and two Olympic campaigns, this year’s recipient of the Outstanding Contribution to Victorian Sport Award is Dr Peter Brukner OAM.

A medical doctor and specialist sports and exercise medicine physician, Peter has treated thousands of elite and community level athletes through involvement with five Australian national teams (swimming, hockey, athletics, football and cricket), 50 years of service to the Melbourne University Football Club (MUFC) along with significant contributions to the Toorak East Malvern Hockey Club, Powerhouse St. Kilda Hockey Club and athletics at a state and national level.
