Inside Sport Editor, James Smith, said: “Since its inception the Clubbies concept has proven to be a magnificent way of recognising the passion and dedication of Australia’s grassroots sporting heroes.
“Each year the mountain of nominations received unearths a stack of new stories of dedication to the cause of community sport.
“While stories of on-field prowess are welcomed, celebrating the devotion of volunteers, administrators and club stalwarts is one of the true highlights.”

CAS president and CEO, Rob Bradley said: "The Clubbies is not about the coach with the most wins or the club which claims the most premierships.
“Clubbies is about rewarding the dedication, integrity and sportsmanship of those who put their heart and souls into community sport."
Sportscover Australia CEO, Simon Allatson said: “At Sportscover we don’t follow the path of sponsors seeking high visibility brand placements - we support the industry where it will have meaningful impact.
“This might be in the form of athlete scholarships, a women in sport initiative, an indigenous marathon project or, in this case, a national club awards program.
“The Clubbies Awards were conceptualised with the intent of becoming the preeminent vehicle to recognise, acknowledge and celebrate the tremendous contribution to sport by thousands of sports clubs and their supporters across the country.
“It’s clearly on strategy for us as a world leading insurance underwriting agency that specialises in sport, fitness and leisure and we are delighted to be able to make a contribution to its continued success.”
Nominations close on February 14, 2020 The public and an expert panel will vote on a shortlist of finalists before winners are notified in March and honoured at a glittering presentation luncheon in April, 2020.
