Minnesota Sports Awards

Sports Minneapolis is pleased to present the third annual Minnesota Sports Awards, a gala that celebrates the best of sports in Minnesota over the past year. From the athletes who’ve inspired us to the moments that captivated us, the awards honor the success stories that embody the spirit of sports in Minnesota.

The evening’s awards show will feature appearances by some of Minnesota’s best-known athletes and sports legends, and a new class of inductees into the Star Tribune’s Minnesota Sports Hall of Fame. Fans from across Minnesota are invited to nominate award winners leading up to one memorable evening that shines a spotlight on the impact of sports in our state

A portion of the proceeds from the 2019 Minnesota Sports Awards will benefit the United Heroes League, a non-profit organization that actively works to ensure that children of military service members are afforded every opportunity to participate in sports.

The 2019 Minnesota Sports Awards will be carried live by FOX Sports North across multiple digital platforms and rebroadcast at a later date.
