Leeds Sports has announced that LeedsBID are to be the main sponsor for the 2017 Leeds Sports Awards.

LeedsBID is focused on delivering an ambitious business plan to transform Leeds city centre, improving experiences, standards and adding value, working in collaboration across the city. The business-led, not-for-profit organisation is the largest UK Business Improvement District outside London and represents over 1,000 businesses in Leeds city centre.

“The Leeds Sports Awards shine a spotlight on the sporting skills and achievements of people in the city, which play a huge part in the work of raising the profile of Leeds locally, nationally and internationally”, said Andrew Cooper, Chief Executive of LeedsBID. “One of LeedsBID’s commitments to the Leeds Sports Awards was leading and facilitating its relocation to a larger city centre venue to reflect the ambition to grow the event.”

“The Leeds Sports Awards are always a tremendous occasion, providing us with the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our local clubs, sporting stars, and our unsung heroes,” said  Councillor James Lewis, Leeds City Council’s executive member with responsibility for sport.

Sport Leeds also welcome Leeds Beckett, University of Leeds, ImageCo and Leeds City Council, who are each sponsoring an award within the Special Contribution category.

With the event now less than a month away, the excitement is rising and tensions are building as we count down the days to the most glamorous event on the Leeds sporting calendar. Celebrate the outstanding sporting achievements of the City of Leeds in 2016, at a star-studded awards ceremony and dinner at the first direct arena on Tuesday 7th March.
