The Awards celebrate the greatest sporting achievements across all sports and there are categories for individuals as well as teams.
British sports broadcaster Amanda Davies will co-host the event, at the Salle des Etoiles.
In addition to celebrating sporting excellence, the Awards provide a global platform for supporting the Laureus Sport for Good movement, by showcasing the incredible work done to transform young lives around the world.
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.
