SINGAPORE, 8 APRIL 2021 – In partnership with title sponsor AIA Singapore and official ball partner SELECT Sport, the Singapore Premier League (SPL) will present monthly awards for the 2021 season for four categories: Player, Young Player, Coach and Goal.
AIA will be sponsoring the Player of the Month and Young Player of the Month accolades with rewards of $500 and $250 respectively, while SELECT Sport will sponsor the Goal of the Month award with a prize money of $200. The winner of Coach of the Month will walk away with a cheque of $300. All recipients will take home a trophy as well.
These accolades serve to recognise outstanding performances and to spur all players to strive towards greater heights. They will be bestowed after judging from a panel that comprises Singapore Men’s National Team Coach Tatsuma Yoshida, FAS Technical Director Joseph Palatsides, FAS Head of Elite Youth Fandi Ahmad as well as members of the media. Without further ado, we present March’s winners below…
