YST nominated for prestigious award

We’re going for gold this summer at the Sports Business Awards.

The Youth Sport Trust is pleased to announce that it has, for the second year in a row, been nominated for the Best Sports Charity at the Sports Business Awards.

These awards were conceived to celebrate the hard work and achievements of individuals and teams who make sporting success possible; the organisers, the suppliers, the designers, the administrators, the advisors, the technologists, the marketers and the companies who ensure that the business of sport, in all its various and myriad forms, happens successfully.

The judging panel, who ranked YST in third place in 2018 (pictured), 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.

This year we will be up against seven other fantastic charities, including EFL’s Charity Partnership with Mind, Everton in the Community, Lord’s Taverners, Newcastle United Foundation, Rackets Cubed, The Golf Foundation and The League, the Children’s Hospital & the Royal British Legion. 

Winners will be announced on Friday 31 May 2019. If you’d like to support us, please send us a tweet including @YouthSportTrust and #SBA2019.
