Today, the 2023 Women’s Football Awards released the much anticipated shortlist for the upcoming ceremony which will recognise the hard work of people, brands and organisations that have shown dedication to helping women’s football to grow.
The ceremony will take place on 25 May at London’s exclusive Nobu Hotel, and hosted by football heroes Eni Aluko (former Chelsea and England international) and Jamie Carragher (Sky Sports presenter).
It is incredibly exciting to see that out lesbian footballers are being celebrated, and we know that their accolades will only continue to grow. Beth Mead, Alex Scott, Dawn Airey and Leah Williamson are some of the sports personalities we love that have made the shortlist. While Leah and Beth are up against each other for the coveted Player Of The Year award, Alex Scott has been nominated in the Journalist Of The Year category, and Dawn is up for the Off The Pitch award.
Jamie Carragher has said, “The shortlist features some of the best and most outstanding talent in women’s football today. There are some fantastic players on this list who are achieving so much in the sport. It is also great to see male football allies recognised as well as other individuals and organisations who are playing their part to grow women’s football. It is going to be a fantastic event.”
