Join The Virtual Celebration

COVID-19 has altered the way we as a community think and view public events, and because of that we will be hosting our 15th annual Atlanta Sports Awards virtually. Instead of the traditional format, this year’s event will be brought directly to your living room as well as millions of other households across the City of Atlanta courtesy of our partners at 11 Alive.

Instead of one night of sports honoring the best moments from 2019, why not have two weeks of coverage and content? This year’s format will break each award into segments, followed by a one-hour special that will air three times. Not only will we look back at 2019, but we will also focus on the ways our community has worked together this year in what has potentially been the most challenging year yet for a lot of us.

Sports have always brought our city together and unity is needed now more than ever. We can’t think of a better way to reenergize the sports community and recognize the hard work of the athletes, teams and icons who continue to shape Atlanta’s sports history.
