Commenting on the Awards, Mark Moisley, GBGB Commercial Director, said:

“Following on from last year’s virtual awards, we are pleased to announce that the Awards will be returning to the spectacular Royal Lancaster Hotel. This is our opportunity to thank everyone in the sport for their commitment over the past year and to honour our worthy award winners. 

“We’re hugely thankful for the sponsors of last year’s Awards for their generous support as we adapted to the challenges of Covid.  While the virtual Awards were a great success given the circumstances, I know that everyone missed the opportunity to celebrate together.”

Last year’s virtual Awards were generously sponsored by ARC, BAGS, Charles Russell Speechlys, Colussus Bets, Coral, Ladbrokes, Press Association, Racing Post Greyhound TV and Star Sports. For details of sponsorship opportunities available for this year’s Awards, please email Mark Moisley:
