Event description

Description

City of Champions is the brainchild of Diane Modahl who forged her own successful athletics career from her home city of Manchester. The event is a bi-annual celebration of the many great Champions from not only the sporting world, but of inspirational business people and leaders in their field who make a huge difference by inspiring lives and areas.

Previous City of Champions Dinners have honored Britain’s most decorated Olympic cyclist, Sir Chris Hoy, Manchester City Council CEO Sir Howard Bernstein and Manchester City Council Leader Sir Richard Leese, Manchester United football legend Rio Ferdinand and a Special Recognition was made to former MCFC footballer Mike Summerbee. In the year of the 2016 double Olympic gold medalist Dame Kelly Holmes DBE accepted the honour and was inducted alongside Commonwealth Games gold medalist Tracey Neville MBE.

Hosted by BBC broadcaster Will Perry, guests to this years star studded 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.

With Olympian and Paralympian guests from a wide range of sporting disciplines you are guaranteed to be inspired and engaged.

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.
