You can see all this in the live stream on the Instagram account of BILD Sport. The presentation of the awards will then take place at 7.30 pm live at BILD.

Around 700 guests from sports, business and media are expected. Among them are: Bayern star Robert Lewandowski, Olympic champions Britta Heidemann (fencing), Maria Höfl-Riesch (alpine skier) and Kristina Vogel, who is sitting in a wheelchair after a training accident. From Hamburger SV are coach Dieter Hecking, sports director Jonas Boldt and President Marcell Jansen on the guest list.
Nine prizes will be awarded, among others in the categories "Hero of the Year", "Star of the Year", "TV" and "eSport". One thing is certain: Horst Eckel is honored for his life's work. The today 87-year-old is the last living player from the world championship team of 1954. At the "Miracle of Bern", in which the DFB team won 3-2 in the final against Hungary, Eckel was the youngest German at the age of 22 Player.
