Awards Ceremony

The 2018 Leicester Mercury Sports Awards will culminate in a lavish awards ceremony at Leicester Tigers Stadium on Thursday 17th January 2019. Guests will be welcomed to the evening with a Champagne reception before enjoying a fabulous three course gourmet meal followed by the winner of each category being presented with their award. A host of sporting celebrities will attend the evening and will present each award alongside the category sponsor.


The night will raise money for the Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation (formerly the LCFC Foxes Foundation) which was renamed this year in honour of the Club’s Chairman who sadly lost his life on Saturday 27th October. Since its formation in 2011/12, the Foundation has raised almost £2M for local charities, helping fund a renovation of Leicester Royal Infirmary’s Children’s Outpatient Ward and life-saving equipment desperately needed by the Children’s Intensive Care Unit.

The power of the Premier League has helped the Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation extend their reach even further, in turn helping improve the lives of countless people across Leicestershire. Over the past few years, there has been a strong focus on providing defibrillators and other life-saving equipment to be placed throughout Leicestershire to maximise accessibility.


Through a small game and silent auction which will take place throughout the evening, we plan to raise much needed funds for these truly worthwhile causes.
