Sports Awards return to Villa Marina

New award to honour Leonie Cooil

The Isle of Man Sports Awards will be held in front of a live audience at the Villa Marina again on the evening of Thursday 25 March.

Last year's event was moved online for the first time due to Coronavirus lockdown restrictions.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, 2020 has presented the Island's leading athletes, coaches and teams with unprecedented challenges.

Nominations for the 11 categories, including sportsman and woman of the year, are open until 29 January.

The under-21 prize has been combined due to the reduced opportunity to compete in 2020.

There's a new award in memory of former Isle of Man Commonwealth Games Chef de Mission and swimming team manager Leonie Cooil, who passed away in 2018 after a battle with cancer.

It will presented to someone who has demonstrated resilience, courage and inspiration to others in Manx Sport.
