The final countdown towards the KwaZulu-Natal Sport Awards is gaining momentum with the opening of the SMS vote line to allow members of the public to vote for their favourite sport star in the Sport Personality of the Year Category. The awards will be held at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre in Durban on Friday, 23 September 2016.
The process of nomination of candidates by Sport Federations has been completed and a panel of experts has already shortlisted three nominees from each of the categories. The panel will select also winners who will be announced during the Awards ceremony.
