The UK Sports Association is delighted to be shortlisted for the LawInSport’s Charity of the Year partnership 2016.

UKSA has been named a finalist alongside 11 other charities in an online vote by members of LawInSport. The search began in early October last year, in which LawInSports invited multiple sport charities to apply to be one of three sport charities of 2016. More than 24 charities applied for the initiative, including Access Sport, Cricket Without Boundaries, and Right to Play.

With the help of Loughborough University, LawInSport is hosting the final round of voting for the finalist on their website. Voting will end at the end of January. Please go out there and vote for UK Sports Association as it would be a huge opportunity for us and the people we serve. Registration is required.

LawInSport is an international sports law digital media business. The company’s focus is to provide expert commentary and analysis on issues and legal developments in the world of sport. LawInSport will plan to reward the winning charity with advertising on its homepage, newsletter, social media exposure, presence and attendance at the charity’s events, help fundraising, donations, and help with recruiting.

Tracey McCillen, Chief Executive of UKSA described the opportunity as: “I am delighted and excited that we have been shortlisted by LawInSport. If selected as their Charity of the Year, it could make such a huge impact on our work in sport supporting athletes with learning disability. I hope that their members love what we do and send their vote our way.”
