The best and brightest talent in the world of sport will be in Aberdeen next month – and you could upgrade your night with the gold medal experience.
The BBC Sports Personality of the Year ceremony will take place in Aberdeen for the first time at the new event complex P&J Live on Sunday, 15 December.
Presenters Gary Lineker, Clare Balding and Gabby Logan will take to the stage to celebrate the year of sport in front of an audience of 10,000, with millions more watching live on BBC One.
Enjoy the Gold Medal Dining Experience before the awards start and continue the celebrations after the ceremony.
Arriving at P&J Live at 2pm at the VIP check in, you’ll attend a special champagne reception. Then you’ll be whisked into the banqueting suite, where you’ll be treated to a three course meal and a pre-show exclusive Q&A hosted by sporting legends.
Once it’s time for the show to start you’ll be seated in a premium area of the arena so you won’t miss a moment of the festivities.
Afterwards enjoy some post-show nibbles and entertainment.
The SPOTY awards highlight the fantastic sporting achievements by British sportspeople and this year has been no exception, with European victory in the Solheim Cup, Liverpool winning the Champions League and Laura Muir becoming the first athlete to achieve the double-double at the European Indoor Championships.
