Sports Personality tickets sold
Sports Personality of the Year
BBC Sports Personality of the Year returns on Sunday 9 December, and public tickets have already sold out.

Over 4,500 tickets, nearly double last year's, were snapped up by lunchtime, Monday 15 October, most gone within 90 minutes of going on sale.

Once set plans are finalised up to a further 500 tickets will go on sale. Details will be on the BBC website.

All proceeds go towards staging the event at the Birmingham NEC, which will be screened on BBC ONE, 1900-2100 GMT.

Even if you could not get a ticket, there will be more ways to be a part of Sports Personality of the Year.

As well as voting on the night for the winner, we need your nominations for the BBC Sport 2007's Unsung Hero award.

There are many contenders to win Sports Personality of the Year.

Lewis Hamilton, after a stunning first season in Formula One, could be a strong contender, as could boxer Ricky Hatton, who fights Floyd Mayweather Jr for the world welterweight title less than 24 hours before the ceremony.

There are many other names likely to be in contention including Frankie Dettori, who finally won his first Epsom Derby this year, England fly-half Jonny Wilkinson after his Rugby World Cup heroics, Scotland goal hero James McFadden, and athletics World Championship gold medallist Christine Ohuruogu.

But sporting superstars are not the only ones to be honoured on the night.

The BBC's 2007 Sports Unsung Hero awards, supported by Robinsons, is designed to pay tribute to those who help others to take part in sport.

You can nominate your own unsung hero by filling in the form on this page. (Users of the BBC mobile service will not see this form.)

Bursaries of up to 2,500 are available to winners of each regional award, to help them with their work in sport.

Full programme and voting details will be announced nearer the time of the show.
