The 2024 Women’s Football Awards, in association with Metro, will bring together the biggest names from the sport at a ceremony hosted by Eni Aluko and Jamie Carragher in London on 30 May
Nominations are now open for public vote, which last year saw Arsenal and England star Alessia Russo scoop the prestigious Player of the Year Award. 2023’s awards, the inaugural event, were also supported by Metro.
As the awards’ media partner, Metro will celebrate the players and people contributing to the phenomenal growth of the sport. Print and digital editorial content, alongside social and email activity, will deliver exclusive updates of the event across all its platforms.
Deborah Arthurs, Metro editor-in-chief, said: “It’s a real honour for Metro to support this year’s Women’s Football Awards. Our editorial team is passionate about women’s sport, and so are our readers. Amazing events like this are deservedly catapulting it to the status it deserves.”
Eni Aluko, former Lioness and 2024 Women’s Football Awards host, said: “It is fantastic that Metro is partnering with the Women’s Football Awards once again to help shine a light on the success of women in the game.
“This event gives a major platform to sport and is the biggest awards event for women’s football in Europe. The 2024 ceremony is set to be the best and most inspiring yet.”
Jamie Carragher added: “Huge credit to Metro for giving this major platform to celebrating the success of women’s football. I am delighted to be part of this event again and joining Eni as co-host. It is going to be a fantastic night.”
Fans can nominate their heroes of the game at www.womensfootballawards.com between now and February, when the final shortlist will be unveiled ahead of the star-studded awards gala on 30 May.
