Event Details

Now in its 65th year, BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2018 is back in Brum and is set to evolve once again – bringing with it a host of new and exciting changes.

This has been an epic year for sport, with England’s fairy tale run at the World Cup, Geraint Thomas storming to victory at the Tour de France, Anthony Joshua’s win over Joseph Parker, Dina Asher-Smith’s phenomenal haul at the European Championships and England’s ‘Roses’ revelling in their historic golden moment in netball at the Commonwealth Games.

With Lewis Hamilton winning a fifth Formula One world title, England’s highest Test run-scorer Alastair Cook ending his international career with a century, Lizzy Yarnold's successful defence of her Winter Olympic skeleton title, and Europe’s victory to regain the Ryder Cup, this year’s awards are set to be the most hotly contested yet.

For the first time ever, the contenders nominated to be crowned BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2018 will be announced on the night of the show with fewer names in the running. As always, the public will decide who is set to emulate 2017 winner Mo Farah and walk away with the much-coveted trophy.

    Contactless

    We are going cashless across all our food and drink kiosks in Forum Live and the kiosks either side of the Arena bowl. Why? Cashless payment means speedier service and less queuing. So, we’re asking folk to ditch the dosh and pay by card. Find out more here.
