Could Greater Manchester win VisitEngland’s search for the country’s most popular sports destination?

3 Jul 2015 - 10:46 by michelle.foster

The race is on to find England’s greatest sporting destination. VisitEngland, is on a quest to find the country’s top sporting destination, and has asked the public to send in their own nominations.

By submitting an image of their “home of sport” – be it Old Trafford or a hidden gem village green - sports fans across the country will help decide the jewel in England’s sporting crown.

To help find England’s sporting capital, simply upload a picture of your own home of sport to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #HomeOfSport with a snappy sentence on where you are, and why it’s the best sporting destination in England.

Approved nominations will appear on a national sports wall at: www.englandhomeofsport.com and will be entered into a prize draw to win a selection of sporting experiences.

Entries are now open, and close at midnight on 31 August 2015, after which an expert panel will work through the nominations to establish a shortlist of sporting hubs.

The shortlist will open to public vote on 16 September, with the destination that receives the highest number of votes announced as England’s Home of Sport on 23 October.

Criteria for the winning destination will include: breadth of sporting experiences, diverse and beautiful backdrops and interesting sports trivia or claims to fame.
