- Outstanding Contribution to Irish Sport
The sport industry in Ireland supports 64,000 jobs, stimulates €3.3 billion in household spending and the total value of sport to the Irish economy (GVA) is €3.7billion. The Irish Sport Industry Awards are intended to recognise and reward excellence in the sporting industry, while simultaneously highlighting the contribution of Sport to Ireland.
The Federation of Irish Sport organises and hosts the awards on an annual basis. The Federation is the representative body for 110 sporting organisations, and works on behalf of its members to create a greater awareness of the importance of Sport across a wide number of areas including business, tourism, health, community, diversity and the economy. The Federation recognises that sport has to be managed, delivered and financed and these Awards showcase those contributions and allow us to say “Thank You” to all those who are involved.
