“We will continue to evolve and develop our match-day experience at Cardiff City, but I’m thrilled that the excellent work we’ve been able to do in a relatively short space of time has seen us nominated in this field. There is more to come.”
About the Sports Business Awards…
The inaugural Sports Business Awards have been conceived to celebrate the hard work and successes of individuals and teams who make sporting success possible.
The judging panel is made up of CEOs across all sports alongside individuals whose knowledge, expertise and experience gives them special insight into the challenges and demands of sports business success – including five times Rowing Olympic gold medal winner Sir Steve Redgrave and World, Commonwealth and European champion hurdler, Colin Jackson.
Designed to celebrate the vital influence of business within sport, the awards will recognise the organisations, teams and individuals who excel in a variety of business, CSR and sports governance disciplines.
With over seventy organisations nominated for fifteen different awards categories, the winners will be announced at the Sports Business Awards 2017 ceremony in London on Friday, 2nd June 2017.
