P&J Live to host BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2019!
The city of Aberdeen is set to host BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2019, the biggest awards night in the sporting calendar, on December 15 live on BBC One from our brand-new events venue and arena, P&J Live.
This is the first time Aberdeen will host the event. The city is known for its sporting heritage as the birth place of Manchester United legend Denis Law and Open-winning golfer Paul Lawrie, and it is also home to Aberdeen FC, the club where Sir Alex Ferguson first made his name as a manager with such extraordinary success.
Presenters Gary Lineker, Clare Balding and Gabby Logan will take to the stage to celebrate a huge year of sport in front of an audience of 10,000 with millions more watching live on BBC One.
Alongside the main event, a special BBC Festival of Sport will take place in Aberdeen on 13th & 14th December. The festival will offer local schoolchildren and members of the public the opportunity to try a variety of sporting activities with BBC Sport talent on hand to offer tips and encouragement.
General tickets go on sale Friday 11th October at 9am from pandjlive.com
