GOAL OF THE MONTH IS BACK
THE journey to the PSL Awards has begun as the voting for the Absa Premiership Goal of the Month has opened to football fans and the public.
Voting is now open on www.PSL. co.za
Absa, sponsors of the Absa Premiership, together with the Premier Soccer League, have re-launched the category in the monthly recognition awards.
Introduced for the first time last season, the award saw power being taken away from the panel of judges and given to the football supporters and members of the public in general in deciding the winner for the Absa Premiership Goal of the Season. Siphiwe Tshabalala from Kaizer Chiefs was the first recipient of the award last season.
Mtunzi Jonas, Head of Sponsorships at Absa, said: “This concept that sees fans voting for their favourite goal is one that has been implemented across many leagues globally and as far as at Fifa, which involves fan engagement. As Absa, we seek to use this opportunity to involve and engage more with the football fans and continue connecting them with their passion of the beautiful game.
“We are continuing with our strategy of allowing South Africans to do life better. We are allowing football fans to do football, just better by voting for their Goal of the Month and ultimately the Absa Premiership Goal of the Season later on in the 2017/18 season,” he added.
There were plenty superb Absa Premiership goals scored during this period, starting back from the opening weekend of the season and fans help chose the winner from the shortlist of 10 best strikes.
Each of the goals selected during the monthly voting will go towards the list of goals that will be voted for the Absa Premiership Goal of the Season at the end of the season - psl. co.za
