Nominate your Western Cape Sport Legend

22 June 2016

The Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport would like to invite members of the sporting fraternity to nominate their local sport stars to be honoured as provincial Sport Legends.

The Legends Awards are hosted annually by the department to honour those who played a role in growing and transforming sport in the province. In order to be eligible, nominees should be over the age of 55 and should have played a role in shaping sport in their communities. Nominees are also ideally people who were not previously recognised because of their gender, race or geographical location.

Anroux Marais, Minister of Cultural Affairs and Sport, said that this is a very important event that acknowledges the roles of individuals in shaping sport in the province. “We must honour our sporting legends and encourage our youth to follow in their footsteps. Their legacy has paved the way for future sporting stars.” she said.

Nominations can be made by submitting a fully completed nomination form, which is available online.

The closing date for nominations is 3 August 2016.
