Football League Championship Player of the Month

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Player of the Month is an association football award that recognises the player adjudged the best for each month of the season in the Football League Championship, the second tier in English football. For sponsorship reasons, since its inception it has been known as the Coca-Cola Player of the Month award; Coca-Cola sponsored the Football League since 2004 and the deal ended 2010. From the 2010–11 to the 2012–13 season, the Football League was sponsored by NPower, so it was known as the NPower Player of the Month award. As of the 2013–14 season, the league has been sponsored by Skybet, so it is now the Skybet Play of the Month award. The awards are designed and manufactured in the UK by bespoke awards company Gaudio Awards.[1]
