Celebrate your sporting heroes this March in the Swansea Sports Awards.

Swansea has a proud tradition of producing great sports people. It takes dedication, determination and hours of hard work to maintain the city of sport we know and love.
Whether it's the volunteer or the coach who puts in hour after hour behind the scenes, the team which has been the most successful through the year or the sportsperson that has achieved the most in their sport, Swansea is a city full of sporting champions.

The Swansea Sports Awards ceremony took place on Thursday 28 March 2024, at the Brangwyn Hall in association with Freedom Leisure.
