Save the Date for the 2021 Victorian Sport Awards
The Victorian Sport Awards (VSAs) is the night of nights for the Victorian sporting community; recognising and celebrating participants, teams, coaches, administrators and the volunteers behind the scenes who have made an outstanding contribution to sport across all levels of sport in Victoria.
Presented by the State Government of Victoria and Vicsport, this year’s VSAs will be held on Wednesday 15 June, 2022 at CENTREPIECE at Melbourne Park.
Honouring those who have made an outstanding contribution to sport in Victoria during the 2021 calendar year, the VSAs acknowledge the full spectrum of Victorian sport across metropolitan and regional areas; from grassroots heroes to those who excelled at the Tokyo Olympic Games.
Each year, the VSAs receives hundreds of nominations which aim to recognise and celebrate the exceptional members of the Victorian sporting community. Nominations for the Awards open on Monday 14 February, 2022 and close on Wednesday 16 March, 2022 via the Vicsport website.
Held at CENTREPIECE at Melbourne Park, the newest venue within the Melbourne & Olympic Parks precinct, the Victorian Sport Awards can be attended by all entrants, nominees, family, friends, sporting organisations and clubs to celebrate the successes of community sport in Victoria.
