Laureus comprises the Laureus World Sports Academy, the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation and the Laureus World Sports Awards, which collectively harness the power of sport to promote social change (and celebrate sporting excellence).

The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation raises funds to provide financial and practical support to more than 100 projects which use the power of sport to provide coaching and education to young people in some of the most challenging or deprived environments around the world.

The annual Laureus World Sports Awards showcase the work for the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation and celebrate the achievements of athletes from across the sporting world.

The Laureus World Sports Academy is a unique collection of 46 of the most successful icons in world sport. Each Academy Member votes for the winners of the Laureus World Sports Awards and uses the power of sport to help tackle pressing social challenges through the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation projects.
