Our Vision


At Sport Newcastle we are passionate about sport and supporting young people to help achieve their sporting dreams.

Sport Newcastle was created from the former Newcastle upon Tyne Sports Council and offers funding and support to men, women and children seeking to realise their sporting dream. Whether backing community projects or local clubs, elite international athletes or individuals of regional repute, we aim to promote success through sport.


The highlight of the Sport Newcastle Year is the Annual Gala Award Dinner staged at Newcastle Civic Centre - a star studded affair attended by the city's sporting heroes of the past, present, and future and culminating in the presentation of the prestigious Sports Personality of the Year Award.
