Sport Northern Ireland Athlete Awards Application Now Open

The Cycling Ireland High Performance Unit would like to invite applications from Northern Irish athletes for the Sport Northern Ireland athlete awards 2024-25. 

Last year young, aspiring professional cyclists from NI received £43,000 in total funding to help with living and training costs. 

The Award is designed to help reduce the financial burden of sustaining a professional lifestyle for young riders that have the potential to achieve elite level success in an Olympic, Paralympic or CWG cycling discipline. 

In the 2024-25 Athlete Award year Sport NI will have a focus on athletes who can qualify and deliver performances at the Paris 2024 Olympic/ Paralympic Games, and the World and European Championships but will also consider athletes with longer term potential.
