Prize money for man of the match

Bidvest Namibia has renewed its commitment to the Bidvest Namibia Cup by launching another Man of the Match contest.

Natasha Drotsky, Public Relations Officer said the Man of the Match was introduced last year to motivate and reward the players.

“It was a great success. We aim to continue and build on this success story – also in 2014.”

The initiative is applicable to each game of Round of 16 starting with tomorrow's clash between Orlando Pirates and African Stars as well as quarter, semi- finals and the final.

Drotsky also said,voting forms will be handed out by the Namibia Football Association and the media will cast their votes at the various games.

“We know that our sport journalists are well versed in football and so we have been lenient in our voting guidelines, as they know what to look out for. They are required to use their discretion, to be fair and look at traits such as the player with the most potential, skills, team work, ball handling and so forth. The player with the most votes and thus the man of the match receives an amount of N$2,000.00 courtesy of Bidvest Namibia as well as a trophy. “We look forward to many exciting games and numerous well-deserving men of matches,” said Drotsky.
