Welcome to the South Wales Argus Sports Awards 2020
The South Wales Argus in association with Niche IFA is proud to announce the third annual Sports Awards.
We are setting out to recognise the true heroes of local sport and to create an event which will be one of the main highlights of the sporting calendar locally.
Local sport is the glue that holds our communities together, providing a foundation for health, fitness and teamwork. A place to identify sporting stars of the future. The South Wales Argus continues to provide up to the minute sports coverage both online and in print through our team of dedicated sports journalists.
The South Wales Argus are proud to recognise the outstanding contribution to sport from grass roots to professional individuals and teams and it is an honour to showcase this through the South Wales Argus Sports Awards of 2020 in a brand new format.
