Who We Are

The Starling Awards will recognise the fantastic diversity of footballers and the communities they come from. The inaugural awards will bring the football community together to celebrate this as one of the game’s greatest strengths!



“Welcome to the Starling Awards website and thank you for visiting.”

“It is exciting to be bringing you the first ever football-focused diversity awards.”

“The vibrancy of these awards comes from the remarkable contributions made by players across all ethnicities.”

“The Starling Awards is a new event that has already created significant interest.”

“This comes across both sporting, and non-sporting communities, including the corporate sponsorship sector.”

“These new awards are highly anticipated and I am delighted to say we are supporting the African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust, which is celebrating its 21st year anniversary.”
