About the Sports Business Awards

Launched in 2008, the Sports Business Awards were established by Sports Business Journal and Sports Business Daily to celebrate the excellence in the business of sports. The 2020 nominees and winners are being recognized for the period of March 1, 2019- February 28, 2020. 


The 2019 Sports Business Awards were held May 22 in New York.


“The Sports Business Awards are the single greatest gathering of sports industry executives of the entire year.  The sports industry’s equivalent of Oscar or Emmy night, we find the Sports Business Awards as the single most,  must attend, event of the year in the business.   If you are an influencer in the business, the event is an outstanding way in which to interact with other executives, and most importantly, honor our industry leaders for their pioneering accomplishments.  There is no better honor than to be recognized by your peers and the Sports Business Awards is the pinnacle of recognition of accomplishment in our industry. The Orlando Magic never miss it, and if you are a leader in the industry, you should not either!”
