Event description

Description

City of Champions is a star-studded event held in Manchester which celebrates the success of sports stars, educators and business people. Organised by Olympian Diane Modahl MBE, the Diane Modahl Sports Foundation and Manchester City Council, this spectacular gala will offer local businesses the chance to rub shoulders and dine with sportsmen and women from a number of disciplines.

This year the bi-annual celebration will see previous champions Dame Kelly Holmes DBE and Tracey Neville MBE (pictured above) hand over the honours to three time Olympian Beth Tweddle MBE and Former CEO of Manchester United and current UK Vice-President of FIFA, David Gill.

The new inductees will join the prestigious group which includes double Olympic gold medallist Dame Kelly Holmes DBE and Commonwealth Games gold medalist and England team coach Tracey Neville MBE; our most decorated Olympic cyclist Sir Chris Hoy; ex-Manchester City Council Chief Executive Sir Howard Bernstein and Manchester City Council Leader Sir Richard Charles Leese CBE; and Manchester United football legend Rio Ferdinand. Special Recognition has also been made to former Manchester City footballer Mike Summerbee.

Hosted by BBC broadcaster Will Perry, guests to this years dinner will meet our 2018 City of Champions inductees, hear Britain’s top athletes and their coaches talk frankly about their systems and processes for optimising performance when it really counts, how they overcome injury and setbacks and how they sustain their focus not just over 100m, but over many years of dedicated training.

Commencing with a champagne reception, guests will enjoy a sumptuous four-course meal with wine, an entertaining speech and some good-natured banter between our speakers. Live music and a host of other goodies will make this a truly memorable evening.
