The ISPS Handa Halberg Awards is New Zealand's leading event to honour and celebrate New Zealand's sporting excellence over the past decade and raise funds for Sir Murray's charity the Halberg Foundation, which aims to enhance the lives of physically disabled young Kiwis through sport and recreation.

It is a must-see event held at Spark Arena and broadcast live on Sky Sport. Much-loved by sportspeople and fans alike, the Awards is an opportunity for New Zealanders to engage in robust discussion and debate about who is most deserving of New Zealand's most prestigious sporting accolade - the supreme Halberg Award.

Put simply, the Awards is a celebration of what all New Zealanders love, which is to see our sportsmen, sportswomen and teams achieve excellence on the world stage.
