It is always one of the most popular series we run through the year and our listing of 30 Under 30 Young Leaders of Tomorrow for 2021, in association with our friends at PwC, is now complete for this year.

Today we reach the final entry for 2021 in highlighting 30 young leaders that are making a mark within the Business of Sport in Ireland. They are drawn from sports administration,  sports sponsorship sports media and other areas. Our ambition is the creation of a network of people making a real difference within our industry.

They join the 100 who have been nominated over the past four years and there is still time to nominate someone you feel might be a good addition.

The 30 Under 30 List will for 2022 will open in January and be published across March and April of next year.

We will be dropping in on this year’s cohort from time to time over the coming months.
