Last month, Walt Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex earned the title of “Business of the Year” at the inaugural Central Florida SPORTYS Awards. The SPORTYS Awards honors both amateur and professional local athletes, coaches, employees and businesses from throughout Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia Counties.
Accepting the award for ESPN Wide World of Sports was the director of sports programs and events at Walt Disney World Resort, Mike Millay.
“It is an honor to be recognized amongst all of the great sports businesses in Central Florida,” Mike said. “I accept this award on behalf of the 250-plus Cast Members that work hard to create magical sports moments for our athletes, as well as our key partners like the AAU, USSSA and Pop Warner who have made Central Florida the home to so many great events.”
SPORTYS award winners were selected through two rounds of voting by a panel of esteemed Central Florida media representatives. The other finalists for the “Business of the Year” award with ESPN Wide World of Sports included Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida and Bright House Sports Network.
