2020 Army Sports Awards Cancelled

Organisers said the next Army Sports Awards will take place in November 2021.

The Army Sport Control Board (ASCB) has announced that its annual sports awards ceremony will not take place this year.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, military sport has been on hold since March and the ASCB has now made the decision to cancel the awards.

In a statement on their website, the ASCB said: "The current circumstances and suspension of representative sport has forced a review of whether or not to hold an Army Sports Awards ceremony this year.

"Given the current suspension of sporting activity, the cancellation of OSVs and the likely restart date for the majority of our sports, the Chairman and Director of Army Sport, with a heavy heart, concluded that the Army Sports Awards Ceremony due to take place in November 2020 should be cancelled."

The statement went on to explain that the next Army Sports Awards will take place in November 2021.
