“It is important that the Gold Coast gets behind both its elite and community sport clubs for this event,” he said.

“This event helps the Gold Coast shape its sporting identity. We celebrate the achievements of sports stars, but also recognise the unsung heroes and volunteers who make sport happen in our region.

“Acknowledging our successes and uniting the sporting community is so important to the future planning of sports projects in the city. The 53rd Gold Coast Sports Star Awards will look ahead to what we can achieve, as much as it looks back on what we’ve achieved so far.”

The Gold Coast Sports Star Awards is a collaboration between not-for-profit organisation Sports Gold Coast and Gold Coast Sporting Hall of Fame, which was established in 1999 to protect the city’s ultra-rich sporting heritage.
