The winner of New Zealand’s Favourite Sporting Moment of the Decade will be announced at the ISPS Handa Halberg Awards Decade Champion ceremony on Thursday 18 February 2021 at Spark Arena in Auckland and will be broadcast live on Sky Sport and free-to-air on Prime TV.
Due to multiple international sports events in 2020 being postponed, reconfigured or cancelled, including world championships, global competitions and the Olympics and Paralympics, the ISPS Handa Halberg Awards in 2021 have been adapted to celebrate the Decade Champions and honour sporting excellence over the past decade.
Previous Halberg Awards winners from achievements in 2010 to 2019 make up the finalists who will vie for the Decade Champion honours across the supreme and major categories.
Importantly, sporting achievements in 2020 will be rolled over into the following year and the eligibility period will be extended accordingly.
