The IOG awards ceremony was held at stadiumMK last night / IOG

Manchester United Football Club’s (MUFC) groundskeeping team has been named among the winners of the annual Institute of Groundsmanship’s (IOG) annual awards.

The awards ceremony, held at stadiumMK in Milton Keynes last night (4 December), recognised winners in 19 different categories, with the MUFC team receiving the professional football grounds team of the year award.

It was a double sweep for MUFC on the night, as the club’s grounds manager, Tony Sinclair, was also given the groundsman of the year award.

Other award winners included the groundskeeping team at One Leisure in St Ives, Cambridgeshire (grassroots sports grounds team of the year); Everton FC (spectator sports ground of the year); and Worcestershire County Cricket Club (professional cricket grounds team of the year).

The grounds team at St George’s Park in Burton was given the award for providing the best maintained artificial pitch of the year.

Now in their sixth year, the IOG annual awards celebrate leadership, innovation and outstanding achievement across every aspect of groundscare. Click here for more info on the awards.
