Partners supporting west Suffolk's truly great sporting community include; Allied Health Professionals Suffolk; Iliffe Media; Music Sales Ltd; Newprint; Our Bury St Edmunds Business Improvement District; Suffolk Sport; Newmarket Racecourses, Verse Facilities Management and Unison.

This will be the first joint sports awards for West Suffolk, delivered by Abbeycroft Leisure on behalf of St Edmundsbury and Forest Heath councils, set against the stunning backdrop of St. Edmundsbury Cathedral.

Cllr Andy Drummond and Cllr Joanna Rayner, Cabinet members respectively for Forest Heath District Council and St Edmundsbury Borough Council said,

'We are delighted that local businesses have come forward with such willing support for the inaugural West Suffolk Sports Awards. Their contribution to the event serves to highlight the important role their sponsorship plays in helping all kinds of sporting activities realise their potential.'

Mark Cordell, Chief Executive, Our Bury St Edmunds BID said,

"As organisers of the annual Festival of Sport, the BID is absolutely delighted to be a sponsor of these awards, which highlights all the great sporting things that are going on across our communities. There are so many unsung heroes in the background dedicating hours of their own time to provide opportunities for local people to participate in organised physical activities and I think it's great that these efforts are recognised by these awards"

Gary Atyes, Head of Commercial Development, Abbeycroft Leisure said,

"The response from the local business community has been incredible for these brand new joint sports awards, with only a couple of awards available to sponsor and we're confident it's going to be a very special evening"

There are still two awards which the public can vote for via the Abbeycroft Leisure Facebook page, from 14 September; the People's Champion, and People's Youth Champion.
