Sevilla chosen for the evening of the trophies

The choice has been made. The Laureus Academy has announced that its next Trophy Night will be held on May 6th, 2021 in Sevilla, Spain. An almost anecdotal choice, since the event will be organised entirely in virtual mode. The traditional “Laureus Awards” will be awarded for the 22nd time to champions, youth, revelations or teams of the year 2020. The health crisis obliges, the ceremony will also be marked by the attribution of new trophies, supposed to highlight personalities or associations that have “worked tirelessly to fight the coronavirus pandemic“. A new trophy will also be awarded to one or more athletes who have used their influence and notoriety in favour of social justice and humanitarian causes. The last Laureus Academy awards ceremony took place last year in Berlin, already in virtual mode. The three previous editions had taken place in the Principality of Monaco.
