The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has reached an agreement with NASCO to sponsor player of the match and month awards in both the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season and the Women’s Premier League.
NASCO has been providing awards for man of the match in the Ghana Premier league since 2017. The GFA have then decided to enhance their partnership with them to continue providing awards for such accolades. Not only man of the match awards are they going to sponsor, they will also hand awards to players and coaches of every month in both the Men’s and Women’s premier league.
Initially, after two games, there hasn’t been any award handed to top performers in games due to lack of sponsorship by then. The top performer on the pitch use to only receive a handshake from the Match Coordinators. NASCO have promised to hand the previous winners their awards after the agreement.
NASCO have disclosed the awards that will be presented to the winners in the Men’s Premier league. Players that will be adjudged man of the match will be given a mobile phone and a shaving machine.
