Hopkins nominated for Coach of the Year


Melbourne Victory W-League Head Coach Jeff Hopkins has been named as a finalist for Wednesday night’s 2019 Victorian Sport Awards at Marvel Stadium.

Hopkins has been nominated for the Coach of the Year Award after helping steer Victory to win the 2018/19 Premiership.

The recognition comes in the lead up to Victory’s Super Saturday double-header at the same venue, where Hopkins will be hoping his squad can overcome Sydney FC and secure a home final.

The Victorian Sport Awards recognises and celebrates the achievements of home-grown premier athletes, grassroots heroes and those who have shown commitment and dedication to community sport in Victoria.

Presented by the State Government of Victoria and Vicsport, the Victorian Sport Awards honours individual and team athletes, coaches, administrators and volunteers from both metropolitan and regional Victoria.

Each year the Victorian Sport Awards receives hundreds of nominations from State Sporting Associations, Regional Sport Assemblies, Local Government Authorities, teammates, club members, coaches or their local community in recognition of their outstanding contribution to sport and active recreation.
