Sport NSW has announced that nominations are now open for 2021’s NSW Community Sports Awards.

The 2021 NSW Community Sports Awards are devoted to recognising the outstanding achievements and contributions to community and grassroots sport by people across NSW. Community and grassroots sport is essential to the thriving of local communities, with much of the work carried out by volunteers.

With more than 500,000 people state-wide dedicating their time to volunteering year in, year out across all sports, the NSW Community Sports Awards exist as a way to acknowledge and pay tribute to the extensive efforts of these volunteers. Without these people, sport would not exist in the current form it does.

In addition, the NSW Community Sports Awards ensure that State Sporting Organisations and State Sporting Organisations for people with a Disability are recognised for the continual effort and for the accomplishments of their volunteers.

The nominations are open to the public to put forward the names of those who contribute immensely to the behind-the-scenes and day-to-day running of sporting clubs, organisations and events.

The 2021 edition of the NSW Community Sports Awards will see nominations invited for a total of 10 categories, including the Distinguished Long Service Awards for those that have provided an unending and extraordinary dedication to their respective sport for over 25 years. This year’s awards categories include;

  1. Community Official of the Year
  2. Young Official of the Year
  3. Community Coach of the Year
  4. Young Coach of the Year
  5. Community Sport Administrator of the Year

  7. Community Team of the Year
  8. Community Club of the Year
  9. Local Council of the Year
  10. Community Event of the Year
  11. Distinguished Long Service Awards

Nominations are only considered for achievements and contributions from May 1st 2020 to April 30th 2021.

Bayern and Adobe

FC Bayern, one of the world’s most historic and successful football clubs, have announced a multi-year partnership with Adobe to power the club’s digital transformation.

The agreement will bring new, personalised experiences to its millions of current and future global fans – both on and offline – while driving greater efficiency and more sustainable business practices through Adobe’s enterprise solutions.

With a rapidly growing global fanbase, FC Bayern is passionate about connecting fans to their favourite club in new ways. Adobe’s technology will provide FC Bayern the ability to better understand its fans to create more engaging and individualised sports experiences.

Adobe Experience Cloud, including Adobe’s customer data platform, will help FC Bayern create fan profiles to better understand how supporters engage with the brand and ensure they enjoy a more personal relationship with their favourite teams. This means the overall matchday experience will be enhanced for fans, giving supporters real-time notifications at their fingertips including merchandising discounts, video content and last-minute ticket availability.

With more digital experiences across platforms, channels and devices, FC Bayern fans will never miss a moment whether they are at the Arena, on the go or in the comfort of their home. For example, when a goal is scored fans will receive content on their preferred channel to celebrate the moment in real time, as well as post-match video commentary and highlights.

FC Bayern will also use Adobe Document Cloud, including Adobe Acrobat Sign, to digitise collaboration with fans, employees and partners. With Document Cloud, activities like signing up for memberships or executing player agreements will be quick and secure, while reducing environmental impact.

“Today’s FC Bayern fan is digitally savvy and craves new ways to get closer to our club and players, which is why we aim to create sustainable and lasting interactions that bring matchday excitement to our millions of passionate fans across the world,” FC Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn in a statement.

“We’re investing in a long-term digital strategy with Adobe’s breadth of enterprise applications at the core of our technology, to deepen how our fans engage with the club and to inspire the next generation of fans for years to come.

“FC Bayern has millions of fans around the world, and they are at the forefront of revolutionising fan experiences,” said Anil Chakravarthy, president of Digital Experience Business at Adobe. “With this partnership, FC Bayern will create more personalised experiences to enable fans to celebrate the passion and heart of the club wherever they may be.”
