EFL League One Manager of the Month

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

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 One, the third tier of English football. The recipient is chosen by a panel assembled by the League's sponsor and announced alongside The Championship and League Two Manager of the Month awards at the beginning of the following month.[1] For sponsorship reasons, from its inception in 2004 until 2010 it was known as the Coca-Cola Manager of the Month award, with the Coca-Cola company sponsoring the league during that period.[2] From the 2010–11 season until the end of the 2012-13 season the league was sponsored by npower and the award was known as the npower Manager of the Month.[3] In July 2013, it was announced that Sky Bet would become the new sponsor of the English Football League[4], and since August 2013 the award has been known as the Sky Bet Manager of the Month. In November 2017 it was announced that Sky Bet and the EFL had agreed for Sky Bet to continue its sponsorship up until 2024.[5]

Coca-Cola had agreed a three-year deal to become the new sponsor of the League early in 2004,[6] and in June 2004 it was announced that the League would be completely re-branded.[7] The Second Division, which had been the third tier of English football since 1992 when the top 22 clubs broke away to form the Premier League,[8][9] was renamed League One. The Premier League already awarded a Manager of the Month award, since the start of the 1993–94 season,[10] and Coca-Cola introduced a Manager of the Month award for League One when they became sponsors at the start of the 2004–05 season; the first recipient was Mike Newell for his achievements in August 2004 with Luton Town.
