With applications now open, the deadline for submissions is 18 October.
The WFS Industry Awards were created exactly to acknowledge and reward the achievements of executives, managers, sponsors, agencies, media, NGOs and so many other professionals whose talent, passion and dedication help make football the world’s greatest game and a thriving industry.
Since the inception of the WFS Industry Awards in 2017, the ceremony has been a part of World Football Summit’s annual congress in Madrid.
Unfortunately, this year the event has been suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but there are even more reasons to celebrate the work of the industry.
During the past months football has faced the biggest challenge of its history – one that is being overcome thanks to the talent, commitment and brilliant work of outstanding professionals.
The 2020 WFS Industry Awards are now open to applications until 18 October.
We also have two new categories – Best Digital Platform and Outstanding Innovation Initiative – and all winners will take to the WFS Live stage on Friday, 27 November.
