Sally Price, Commercial Manager was thrilled with the nominations:


“All of us here at the Swindon Wildcats are honoured to have been nominated for such a great selection of awards, to be short listed for all three is quite surreal and we cannot wait to attend the event on the 24th, fingers crossed we do well on the night!  I’m so proud of the whole team here at Swindon Wildcats, and so happy we have been recognised for all of our hard work.”



Keep your eyes peeled on social media on Thursday 24th January to see if we win any of the awards which are being hosted at the DoubleTree Hilton in Swindon.
