For the past 21 years, the achievements of PNG’s top sporting personalities have been recognized through the annual SP Sports Awards. The event takes its name from its major sponsor, South Pacific Brewery who began supporting the awards in 1992. Under this sponsorship the SP Sports Awards has grown in size and spectacle with 15 award categories ranging from Sportsman and Sportswoman of the year to Sports Administrator of the year and Sports Reporter of the year. A who’s who of PNG sports in recent history have been recognized; with Ryan Pini, Dika Toua, the 1992 PNG Kumuls, VeituDiro, Naluge Guy, Peter Pulu, and Stanley Nandex amongst those with SP Sports Awards to their names. The annual event has also attracted some big name guest speakers to the country including the likes of Cathy Freeman, Bill Harrigan, Tim Horan and Ken Sutcliffe. Each year members of the sporting community look forward to being a part of PNG sports’ night of nights, the SP Sports Awards.
