Volunteers in Sport Awards 2022

Each week over 450,000 people volunteer to help make sport happen. Without them there would not be teams coached, matches played, pitches prepared, races run or courts kept in condition. Their efforts are worth over €1.5bn to the economy.

The Federation of Irish Sport hosts the Volunteers in Sport Awards as a unique celebration to honour and recognise individuals who are part of the wider volunteering community involved in sport, who give freely of their time and efforts in a variety of ways through the structure of sports clubs and/or community organisations in Ireland.

The 2022 Volunteers in Sport Awards, supported by the National Network of Local Sports Partnerships will be celebrated retrospectively on the 22nd March 2023. There will be an in-person awards ceremony in the Crowne Plaza Hotel Blanchardstown in Dublin. Nominations open on Tuesday 13th December 2022. Entries will be accepted until midnight on Wednesday 8th February 2023.

Complete the entry form to celebrate the volunteer you admire most. There will be 32 county winners decided and an overall award for Outstanding Achievement. Each county winner will receive a commemorative prize.
