Vote for your Sporting Champions in Mid Ulster

It's time to highlight our best sports people at the Mid Ulster District Council Sports Awards 2024, and nominations are now open. The prestigious awards aim to recognise the wealth of sporting talent of individuals and teams from local clubs, schools or sporting organisations who reside or are based in the Mid Ulster area.

Organised by Mid Ulster District Council, the sports awards aim to recognise and celebrate outstanding achievements in the local sports community and will acknowledge the outstanding contribution of coaches and volunteers who help build on the district's reputation for sporting excellence.

The Sports Awards will also celebrate and champion people with disabilities in sports. The awards will highlight the wide-ranging levels and variety of sports that are delivered in the district that make the sporting world a more diverse and inclusive place.
