At the inaugural Laureus World Sports Awards in 2000, Nelson Mandela’s declared that, “Sport has the power to change the world”. Since that moment, thanks to the support of its partners, Academy Members and Ambassadors, Laureus Sport for Good now supports over 150 projects in more than 40 countries, helping to change young lives for the better.

Each year, one example of this work is recognised, through the prestigious Laureus Sport for Good Award.
