Aberdeen Sports Village supports local awards


Aberdeen Sports Village has stepped forward as category sponsors ahead of Aberdeen’s Sports Awards 2017.

The Granite City sport and exercise facility has sponsored the Community Partner of the Year category which is awarded to a local business which has provided support, resources or equipment to a local sports project, club or individual.

Aberdeen’s Sports Awards celebrates the wealth of sporting achievements and contributions made by local athletes, volunteers and clubs in encouraging individuals to be active.

The ceremony, hosted by the Active Aberdeen Partnership, will be held at the AECC on Thursday 26th October with 18 categories in the running.

Commenting on the awards, Active Aberdeen Partnership Chairman Tony Dawson said:

“It is brilliant that Aberdeen Sports Village has chosen to sponsor the Community Partner of the Year Award.

“This award puts the spotlight on Aberdeen businesses who have gone the extra mile by supporting local sports clubs, helping them to continue to thrive throughout our city and giving people the opportunity to take part in sport and get active in a community setting.

“These awards are an opportunity to recognise the clear culture of sporting excellence and outstanding performance that Aberdeen has fostered.”

Duncan Sinclair, Chief Executive at Aberdeen Sports Village said:

“We are thrilled to be part of Aberdeen’s Sports Awards which recognise so many outstanding sporting achievements right here from our home town.

“Aberdeen Sports Village is passionate about providing opportunities for everyone in the community to take part in sport and encouraging active lifestyles, and so sponsoring the Community Partner of the Year Award means a great deal to us.

“This award gives local businesses the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to the local community and gives them the recognition they so rightly deserve for championing sporting opportunities across the city.”
