The Laureus Sports Awards is arguably the most prestigious sports-wide awards in the world and its 2014 list of nominations is as strong a line-up as ever.
Laureus have taken on the task of trying to identify which side was the most impressive over the past 12 months, out of all professional sports sides in the world.
The Team category is perhaps the most tricky to call, as winning trophies is not the only indication that a side has done well, especially as some teams only have the chance to compete for a single trophy.
Being greater than the sum of its parts is the aim of every team and this gauge is all relative, so GMS do not envy the judges' task for this category.
Team is one of seven different categories - the others being Sportsman, Sportswoman, Comeback, Breakthrough, Action and Disability; GMS have also listed the nominations for the Sportsman and Sportswoman awards - see the official Laureus website for more information on the awards.
