Big Kick Energy, a podcast hosted by Suzi Ruffell and Maisie Adam, has won a Broadcast Sports Award.

The format, launched in August 2023, is dedicated to the world of women's football, "but you don't have to be a football fan to enjoy it".

Maisie Adam says: "We won a bloomin' Broadcast Sport Award! Who knew a couple of idiots titting about and laughing at football counts as 'broadcasting'. Next year we'll enter the Sports Management Awards, I reckon that'll be a doddle and all!"

Suzi Ruffell adds: "We have loved creating Big Kick Energy and celebrating all parts of women's football from grassroots to the WSL to internationals. I'm over the moon to have won a Broadcast Sport Award, especially given I am such a new fan to the beautiful game. Pacey and Goosey 4 life!."

Ish Kalia and Mobashir Dar produce the show for production company Vibrant Television. They say: "We have enjoyed every minute of working with Maisie and Suzi on Big Kick Energy. They have poured so much hard work into every show and fully deserve this Broadcast Sport Award. We're incredibly excited to continue this journey of elevating and celebrating women's football with these two hugely talented comedians".
