Sports Personality tickets latest

Joe Calzaghe and his father recall their Sports Personality wins

Sports Personality of the Year
Venue: Liverpool Echo Arena Date: Sunday, 14 December Time: 1900 BST Coverage: Live on BBC One, BBC Radio 5 Live & BBC Sport website.

BBC Sports Personality of the Year returns on Sunday 14 December and we are giving you the chance to be there.

Tickets for this year's sporting spectacle at Liverpool's Echo Arena, who take over as hosts from the Birmingham NEC, will be on sale soon.

"The tickets for the last two events in Birmingham sold out in less than hour," said the show's editor Carl Doran.

"We're expecting tickets will be in huge demand again after an extraordinary year of sport."

Each ticket costs 30 plus booking fee with all proceeds going towards the staging of the event.

Full details and terms and conditions will be announced on the Sports Personality website soon, relating to how to purchase and receive your tickets.


Last year's event was watched by 8.6m television viewers on BBC One last year, who saw boxer Joe Calzaghe pick up the main award.

Other award winners last year included, Calzaghe's father, Enzo, who won Coach of the Year, while the England rugby union team won the Team of the Year prize.

The Overseas Sports Personality of the Year award went to Swiss tennis star Roger Federer while teenage diving sensation Tom Daley took the Young Sports Personality of the Year accolade.

The Unsung Hero award was collected by Margaret Simons, who had given 40 years of service to Bardwell Football Club, while Paralympian Oscar Pistorius was honoured with the Helen Rollason Award.

Arguably, the moment of the night came when former England football manager Sir Bobby Robson picked up the Lifetime Achievement Award from Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

Expect many more great moments at this year's show.
