“I’m delighted to launch the call for entries and to announce Financial Broker as the official sponsor of these prestigious awards. I would like to thank them for their support in recognising the valuable link sport plays to the economy. Through these awards and variety of categories we recognise the value that sport adds to the Irish economy across the sporting landscape. According to Sport Ireland research the sport economy has grown faster than the economy as a whole over the past 10 years. We are looking forward to building on the success of the 2022 awards and celebrating the return to sporting activity post-pandemic and looking towards the future of the sports sector.”
