Law firm Fieldfisher have once again thrown their support behind the London Sport Awards, agreeing to become an Award category sponsor for a third time.

The Harnessing the Power of Elite Sport Award in association with Fieldfisher will be presented at The Final at Twickenham Stadium on March 14.

Last week, it was announced that BIGKID Foundation, Saracens Sport Foundation and Palace for Life Foundation’s Playmakers project are the three shortlisted nominees in the running for the Award.

Each nominee successfully demonstrates how using elite sport’s reach and influence can change people’s lives and inspire them to increased levels of activity.

The winner will be announced at the London Sport Awards ceremony at Twickenham in just one month’s time in front of a crowd of more than 400 people.

Patrick Cannon, of Fieldfisher, said:

“We are thrilled to continue our support of the fantastic London Sport Awards which has been a truly inspirational event over the past few years.

“London is home to so much incredible elite sport it is hugely exciting to learn more about how this is being used to get more Londoners active across the city.

“We look forward to seeing each of the three nominees at Twickenham Stadium next month and wish them all good luck for the night itself.”

The forward-thinking organisation has a particular focus on energy & natural resources, technology, finance & financial services, life sciences and media across its 24 offices in 10 countries.

The firm’s sports group acts for sports bodies and regulators, marketing agencies, sponsors, sports brand owners, broadcasters and professional clubs across all the major sports, including football, motor racing, rugby, cricket, horseracing, golf, basketball and extreme sports.

The full London Sport Awards shortlist was announced last week live on BBC Radio London with Fieldfisher becoming the fifth sponsor to support an individual category.

London Sport’s Commercial Director Rob Smyth said:

“It’s great to have Fieldfisher back for a third year supporting the London Sport Awards which is set to be another spectacular celebration of grassroots sport and physical activity.

“We were thrilled with the volume of nominations received in the Harnessing the Power of Elite Sport category and we know we have three very strong shortlisted nominees.”
