Nick Keller, Chairman of the Sport Industry Group, commented: “2012 marked a remarkable year for sport in the UK, with London at the heart of it. But what made this past year so memorable is the work that was put in to ensure that success, not just on the track, field, or pool, but online, on TV, on billboards and in stadia. Being named on the Official Shortlist for the Sport Industry Awards is definitive proof that a team, brand or organisation's work has been amongst the very best in its field across an entire year.”
