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
