Your business could benefit from some wonderful PR (if we do say so ourselves)..

Boost their chances:

Nominations are now open for the Berkshire Football Awards and as we start to share the nominations online, we’re looking for a few local businesses who might be able to sponsor an award or two.

Awards include those for volunteers, content creators, managers, players and referees, 16 in total and you can see the full list here.

The night itself is a terrific evening – ‘proper feelgood’ if you will – gathering together the great and the good of grassroots football, hosted by Sky Sports Tom White at Double Barrelled Brewery in Reading on Wednesday 21st June 2023.

As a sponsor, there is an opportunity to present your award in person and you’ll have the following available:

  • Company logo and link on all articles associated with your sponsorship
  • Company logo and link on all awards pages on this website
  • Company logo on the award
  • Acknowledgement and @’s in all our social posts relating to your award
  • Company logo on the event programme

Award sponsorship starts at £150 with discounts available for multiple awards.

If you are interested in taking a sponsorship or finding out more, please contact Tom Canning at tom.canning@footballinberkshire.co.uk

Scroll down to the bottom of this article for the nomination form. Before you do that though, here’s what the judging panel are looking for when choosing the shortlist.

What’s the story? Tell us exactly why the person or place should be considered. We hate to get all ‘X Factor journey’ on you but the more detail you can include, the better we can argue for your nominee for the short list.

The sort of details we love to see include things like player awards, goals, clean sheets and any other significant contributions to the footballing community – obviously within the 2023/24 season.

We’ll publish all the nominees for the Berkshire Football Awards as we receive them.

You can view all the 2024 nominees so far here.

Want to know who’s previously won what at the Berkshire Football Awards? There’s a big long page with all the previous winners here.

Nominations will be open until midday on Monday 27th May 2024.

The Long List will be published on Wednesday 29th May and the Short List on Friday 31st May.

Once nomination window has closed, the nominations in each category will be put before a panel of judges for a decision, the top four announced online and the winners at the awards night on Wednesday 19th June.

We will accept nominations for people out of area, the only prerequisite is that the reason for nomination is that it must be because of an affiliation with a club we cover on Football in Berkshire (a full list is at the bottom of this page). We will present certificates and a trophy to the winners.

  • You can nominate as many people as you like for each award
  • Please try and avoid nominating your own family members.
