Swansea Sports Awards in association with Freedom Leisure

Swansea has a proud tradition of producing great sportspeople. It takes dedication, determination and hours of hard work to maintain the city of sport we know and love.

Whether it's the volunteer or the coach who puts in hour after hour behind the scenes, the team which has been the most successful through the year or the sportsperson that has achieved the most in their sport, Swansea is a city full of sporting champions.

Every year we recognise and honour their achievements and outstanding contributions to sport through the Swansea Sports Awards.
