Nominations for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Unsung Hero award are now open.
All entries must be received before 23:59 BST on Sunday, 30 October 2022.
In a landmark year for sport, we are celebrating the best volunteers in sport whose work is making a real difference.
For 20 years, volunteers have walked the red carpet with sport’s VIPs as guests of honour at Sports Personality of the Year.
Previous winners have taken the platform and grown their club networks to help more people locally, made appearances in national media, joined Olympic legacy boards, worked closely with government mental health initiatives, and consulted on Home Office projects to help young people at risk.
Community sport makes a difference, and Unsung Hero helps our winners do even more.
How do I nominate?
It’s easy: tell us – either by writing or on film – why your nominee deserves to be our Sports Personality of the Year Unsung Hero.
The nominee must be 16 or older, and to nominate you must be over 18, or have consent from someone relevant over 18.
