Improving the lives of vulnerable children through sport and education is at the heart of Play for Change and the TV Sports Awards offers the opportunity to build a lasting platform of social change.”

The prestigious event, supported by SPORTELMonaco, will feature an array of sporting legends, as well as high-profile guests from the world of sport, media and entertainment. Kate Abdo, broadcaster for Sky Sports and presenter of the Ballon d’Or, will host the event, which will showcase exceptional sports media achievements in aid of Play for Change, a sport and education charity for vulnerable children.
