MAN OF THE MATCH - Supporters can now vote for the FA Cup Budweiser Man of the Match - London, 10 November, 2011 - In an historic move, football fans will now decide which player is awarded the official Man of the Match for every match of The FA Cup with Budweiser.
The Budweiser Man of the Match award will be voted for by football fans across the UK - a role usually reserved for broadcast commentating teams. The British public will get to choose the top player from every single match in the competition - from the First Round proper on Saturday 12th November all the way through to the final next May.
With football fans now having a platform for their opinions to be heard (and judged), they just need to head over to the Budweiser UK Facebook page and select the Man of the Match panel on the The FA Cup with Budweiser Hub during matches. Their individual player vote from their selected game will then count towards the final outcome. And if football fans are not near their computer they can still vote using the free official Budweiser Man of the Match app available for iPhones and on Android.
Budweiser is bringing the competition closer to the fans and celebrating all that is grass roots football by letting the fans' voices be heard, whether it is Sheffield Utd vs Oxford Utd, the minnows of Salisbury City v Arlesey Town or a mouth-watering top of the table clash. Their decisions will also see the winning player celebrate with a unique prize - a magnum of beer to celebrate with his teammates.
Iain Newell, Western European Marketing Director, Budweiser comments: "We know how passionate football fans are about The FA Cup with Budweiser and we wanted to let their opinions be heard. By giving fans the chance to choose the Man of the Match, Budweiser is bringing something new to the most iconic football competition in history, and bringing passionate fans closer to the game they love by celebrating players in every single game. We're proud to be making this amazing tournament even greater with Budweiser's Man of the Match."
