“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language that they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.”

Nelson Mandela

Like Nelson Mandela, we believe that football is an incredible force for good. In the UK and communities around the world football is changing lives and making a positive mark. Yet so much of this work goes unrecognised.

That’s why Coaching for Hope is delighted to be hosting the inaugural Football for Good Awards. These pioneering awards are the first ever to focus exclusively on all the good things done using football. It’s a chance to celebrate all the good that goes on both on the pitch and behind the scenes, at all levels of game. The type of good that seldom makes the headlines.

Hosted by Sky Sports’ Ed Chamberlin, the awards ceremony will be held on 2 December 2015 at Old Billingsgate Vaults in London. The evening attended by the great and the good of the football world will include a drinks reception, gala dinner, a celebration of key moments from Coaching for Hope’s 10 year history, the awards themselves – presented by Coaching for Hope Ambassadors – and an exclusive after show party with a superstar DJ.

The Professional Footballer’s Association will chair the judging panels for each award and promote the awards through their networks, investing the awards with real prestige and industry credibility. The award sponsors will also sit on the judging panel alongside an expert in the field.
