Neil Warnock has won the award 6 times holding the joint second place.

The Manager of the Month is an association football award that recognises the manager adjudged best for each month of the season in the Football League Championship, the second tier of English football. The recipient is chosen by a panel assembled by the League's sponsor and announced alongside the League One and League Two Manager of the Month awards at the beginning of the following month.[1] For sponsorship reasons, since its inception it has been known as the Coca-Cola Manager of the Month award, with the company sponsoring the league from 2004–2010.[2] From the 2010–11 season, the league was sponsored by npower and the award has been known as the npower Manager of the Month.[3]

Coca-Cola had agreed a three-year deal to become the new sponsor of the League early in 2004,[4] and in June 2004 it was announced that the League would be completely re-branded.[5] The First Division, which had been the second tier of English football since 1992 when 22 clubs broke away to form the Premier League,[6][7] was renamed The Championship. The Premier League already awarded a Manager of the Month award, since the start of the 1993–94 season,[8] and Coca-Cola introduced a Manager of the Month award for the Championship when they became sponsors at the start of the 2004–05 season; the first recipient was Paul Jewell for his achievements in August 2004 with Wigan Athletic.[9]

Billy Davies has won the award a record 7 times. Followed by Neil Warnock, Chris Hughton. Warnock's coming three times whilst Sheffield United manager, once in the 2007–08 season with Crystal Palace and twice in the 2010-11 season with former club Queens Park Rangers and Billy Davies also at three different clubs (twice each with Preston North End and Derby County and three times with Nottingham Forest). Chris Hughton has won it four times with Newcastle United and twice with Birmingham City.

The awards are designed and manufactured in the UK by bespoke awards company Gaudio Awards.[10]
