Shortlisted finalists will be announced in April 2018 and the winners will be announced during a black-tie awards evening at the Telford International Centre, UK, on 21st June 2018. The Awards will be presented by much-loved British TV sports presenter Jeff Stelling at the event, which includes a drinks reception, three-course meal and entertainment.  This year’s Awards event will be fundraising for charity partner Tomorrow’s People, which helps young people trapped by unemployment to find and keep jobs and transform their futures.
