MTN Uganda, the official broadcasting partner of the SUPL league with Sanyuka TV, is set to reward the overall football personalities and fans of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) in the just concluded football season, at the end of this month.
The awards dubbed “MTN SUPL FANS AWARDS” follow the successful voting and monthly cash prizes that MTN has been extending to club football players and coaches as voted by the SUPL fans since February 2021
until the end of the season in May this year. The most engaged fans online have also been beneficiaries in these monthly activations.
The SUPL 2020-21 season kicked off at a time when fan activity in the stadia was curtailed because of the difficulties with enforcing COVID-19 SOPs. As such, football fans were only able to watch their favourite clubs on Sanyuka TV which has the broadcast rights for the local league.
Talking about the upcoming MTN SUPL Fans Awards, Somdev Sen, the MTN Uganda Chief Marketing Officer said that the advent of the pandemic denied football fans the excitement of being in the stadium and supporting their favorite teams of Uganda’s most popular sport.
“As MTN Uganda, we ensured that the game of football remained exciting for the fans through the various online engagements where the fans voted for their favorite players and coaches that we have been rewarding on a monthly basis. Next month, we shall be rewarding the overall season’s winners,” Somdev said, urging football fans to vote for their favorite personalities and team on the MTN Website and the Sanyuka Facebook page.
The award categories include; the MTN Fans Player of the season, the MTN Fans coach of the Season and the MTN Fans Club of the Season. Up to three football fans with the highest number of online engagements will be also awarded.
