As the official sponsors for the annual event, MTC have sponsored a total prize money of N$150,000, towards the Namibia Premier League.
Other awards that will be conferred at the awards ceremony include the Top Goal Scorer of the Season, the Players’ Player of the Season, the Coach of the Season, the Referee of the Season, the Assistant Referee of the Season and the Chairman’s Award of the Season.
The Top Goal Scorer of the Season award of N$30,000 will go to Jerome Louis of Black Africa and Richard Kavendji of Hot Spurs who both scored 12 goals during the season. The Chairman’s Award will be decided by the chairman of the Namibia Premier League, JJ Doeseb, and will go to a team or individual that has excelled against the odds and exhibited exemplary conduct in the promotion of Namibian football.
The Northern and Southern Stream First Division winners will also receive awards on the night for their hard work and dedication.
