The award is designed to celebrate those heroes that never give up hope, they have the determination, skill & perseverance to change the shape of the game completely.
Said David Norris, Founder of Beyond 90: “We believe there is no greater moment than a goal scored after the ninetieth minute of a match. The euphoria created at that point stays with sports fans forever and makes for great stories.
“Our aim at Beyond 90 is to make sure those stories are shared and remembered. We’re proud to create spectacular stadium ceremonies that give every fan something to remember and we hope the new Beyond 90 Trophy becomes an annual highlight that both fans and players will find equally memorable.”
