Our Manifesto

Now more than ever

The sporting world needs game changers

Those who believe there is nothing to lose, even when everything is at stake

Those with the vision and conviction of thought that inspire us all to challenge the status quo

Who with fearless brilliance and surgical precision push faster, further, higher, to unleash their greatness

Here’s to the trail blazers, the round pegs in the square holes, the record breakers

Together we can leave a legacy, together we can achieve brilliance.



The Sport Industry in Asia is delivering best in class work globally, and at the same time, developing and elevating sport participation and spectatorship in the region.

There was no authentic platform recognizing and celebrating the brands, agencies, marketers, rights holders, tourist destinations, venues and other organizations which are positively influencing the sporting landscape in Asia.

MMC Sportz created a meaningful and authentic platform to shine a light on all the great work being delivered.


SPIA Asia – Asia’s Sports Industry Awards & Conference is the only platform of its kind.
