30 Jul, 2020
The Greater Orlando Sports Commission (GO Sports) has announced that Orlando Health will be the presenting sponsor of the 2020 SPORTYS: Greater Orlando's Night of Champions. The show will air commercial-free on WKMG-TV News 6 and stream online on Saturday, August 29 at 7:00 p.m. EST.
First introduced in 2011, the SPORTYS were an awards show dedicated to the Greater Orlando sports community. The show recognized dozens of athletes and professionals for their unwavering work and performance in our local sports industry. That format continued through 2013.
The SPORTYS are returning in 2020 with a new focus on honoring sports business professionals whose contributions and impact are vital in making Greater Orlando one of the country’s premier sports destinations. There will be 12 award categories for this year’s event.
“In the midst of these difficult and trying times for our community, we still want to be able to recognize and celebrate the many individuals in our sports community who have gone above and beyond for not only their respective organizations, but for the Greater Orlando region,” said Paul Johns, Chief Operating Officer at Orlando Health South Lake Hospital and Chairman of the Greater Orlando Sports Commission Board of Directors.
Nominations are now being accepted online at GreaterOrlandoSports.com/SPORTYS. The nomination period will close on Tuesday, August 4 and a voting committee will determine the finalists and a winner for each category. Finalists will be notified and announced in advance of the broadcast, and the winners will be revealed during the televised event on Saturday, August 29.
