The Laureus World Sports Awards are the ultimate sporting honour, presented each year by the Laureus Academy to celebrate the sporting achievements of the last year.
After an extraordinary year, the Laureus Awards will mark the extraordinary contribution of sportsmen and women on and off the court, track or pitch, reflecting the impact of Covid-19 and the social advocacy seen across sport.
This year’s Awards promise to be another extraordinary event on the sporting calendar with Nominees including Rafael Nadal (Tennis), Lewis Hamilton (F1), Naomi Osaka (Tennis), Liverpool FC (Football), Patrick Mahomes (American Football), Bayern Munich (Football), among many others.
Winners are selected by the 69 legendary sportsmen and women of the Laureus Academy, based on a list of nominations voted on by a panel of over 1000 sports media from 100 countries.
The 2020 Awards are hosted from Seville, Spain as a virtual event to respect ongoing restrictions on movement and gathering around the world. The Awards, hosted by Spanish actress Paz Vega, will see contributions from stars of sports, screen and music as the Awards are presented and accepted.
This year the Laureus News Edit will include sports content of the winners (available for use in 48 hour window), licensed for inclusion in Laureus-focused editorial reports.
