The Premier Soccer League together with sponsors MTN have put a R25 000 reward for each goal scored at the MTN8 Final at Orlando Stadium on Saturday.
This means that a player will get R25 000 for each goal he scores during the match. This excludes penalties and own goals.
In addition, MTN has also made a once-off prize money increase for the man of the match from R8 000 to R25 000.
Highlands Park will play SuperSport United at Orlando Stadium at 18h00. Gates open at 15h00 and the music concert will start at 15h30.
These prizes mark the 12th year of MTN successfully hosting this tournament in the year that the organisation celebrates 25 years of existence.
The winning club receives the coveted R8 million prize, while the runner-up and other six clubs get the same participation fee of R800 000.
Mapula Bodibe, Executive Consumer at MTN SA says: “This year’s MTN8 Final is extra special to us as it takes place in a year that we are celebrating 25-years of brightening the lives of our customers and football fans. The company has lined up exciting rewards to celebrate with our customers and football fans – this is to thank them for enabling us to reach this milestone.”
