This season’s highly anticipated EFL Awards will be available to watch live and for free on the Sky Sports app on Sunday evening.
Hosted by Sky Sports presenters Bela Shah and David Prutton, the Awards will be streamed on the app from 7pm, live from the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
Celebrating the EFL season both on and off the pitch, the Awards are split into three sections, with the approximate timings as follows:
- 7pm – Community Awards
- 8:40pm – Club Awards
- 10pm – Football Awards
Supporters will be able to watch the evening’s entertainment unfold as either Aleksandar Mitrović, Harry Wilson or Dominic Solanke will be named Sky Bet Championship Player of the Season.
Mitrović’s remarkable 40 goals have already fired Fulham back to the Premier League. The Serbian has been assisted regularly by team-mate and Welsh wizard Wilson, who has racked up double figures for goals and assists to help Fulham return to the top flight. Meanwhile, leading the line with his speed, strength and intelligence, Bournemouth’s Solanke has 26 Championship goals to his name and is also a contender.
In Sky Bet League One, midfielders Scott Twine and Barry Bannan are up against Rotherham United striker Michael Smith for the Sky Bet Player of the Season award.
In Sky Bet League Two, Forest Green Rovers have two players in contention in Kane Wilson and Matty Stevens, whilst Newport County’s goalscoring machine Dominic Telford completes the list.
The EFL Young Player of the Season will be given out divisionally for the first time, with Nottingham Forest duo Brennan Johnson and Djed Spence on the Championship shortlist alongside the talented Fulham youngster Fabio Carvalho.
The season’s most spectacular strike will also be recognised in the award for Goal of the Season.
Three Football Manager Teams of the Season will be announced on the night, with a manager and starting XI chosen for each individual division.
The League’s two most prestigious awards, the Contribution to League Football and Sir Tom Finney Award, will also be presented on the evening.
In addition, Clubs will be commended for their work off the pitch, with the Your Move Community Club of the Season set to be announced alongside the Community Project of the Season and PFA Player in the Community.
New for 2022, the EFL will also be presenting Diversity and Sustainability Awards alongside the Kin + Carta Family Club of the Season and Supporter of the Season.
