Welcome to National Sporting Heritage Day 2022

National Sporting Heritage Day Promo 2022

Celebrating Diversity in Sport #NSHD2022

Held on 30th September, National Sporting Heritage Day is our annual event to champion all our sporting heritage. We want people to use the day to share and celebrate their sport, sporting heritage stories and collections. The day began in 2014 with a handful of activities and has grown each year to include more sports and a greater variety of events and partners.

There are lots of ways to get involved from holding events, creating exhibitions and hosting tournaments, to sharing collections, videos and stories online. The public can get involved by attending an event in their area or by engaging with #NSHD2022 and sharing their own sporting heritage stories.

This year we want to use National Sporting Heritage Day 2022 to celebrate and share the diversity within sporting heritage. We want the activities that happen on 30th September to reflect all our experiences of sport and sporting heritage and to be an inspiration to everyone.

We want to support people and organisations to use NSHD2022 to share stories from their communities. This might include communities who we recognise are under-represented in our work so far, including young people, LGBT+ people, disabled people, people of colour and neurodiverse people.

Why should I get involved?

Anyone can get involved in National Sporting Heritage Day! The day is an exciting opportunity to take part in a national campaign to champion your sport. It can help you celebrate and promote what you do, find new audiences, give profile to your sporting pioneers and inspire a new generation. National Sporting Heritage Day is supported by a growing community and it relies on people getting involved to make change and have an impact.

“National Sporting Heritage Day helped us to provide a platform for female players from a diverse range of ages and ethnicities to share their experiences. It has also increased confidence and pride amongst our group members and opened opportunities for us”. Ruth Johnson, Football Unites, Racism Divides
