UPDATE: VOTING has closed as of 8am on Saturday 19 August.
With the women's varsity football final approaching it's that time of the tournament where we recognise three outstanding players this year and ask the public to vote for the player they think should be crowned the FNB Player Of The Tournament 2023.
All eight women's varsity football head coaches were asked to nominate three players they felt were the most impressive and were not allowed to nominate a player from their own university. The nomination process was weighted with first position worth three points, second position two points and third position one point. The votes were then added up and the three players with the most points are now being put forward to the public, whose votes will determine the winner.
The public can cast their votes below from Wednesday, 16 August until 8am on Saturday 19 August. The winner will be the player with the most votes at the deadline and will be announced after the final on the same day.
Lusanda Mavundla: The UJ forward is currently the tournament's top scorer with 5 goals in three games, scoring two braces and was instrumental in helping the defending champions advance to this year's final. She won the FNB Player of the Match award in their win over Wits in the semi-final. Born in Durban her footballing hero is Alexia Puttelias.
Chelsea Daniels: The Cape Town born forward has scored in each of UWC's last three games and was named the FNB Player of the Match in their game against DUT. She represented South Africa at u17 and u20 level and her football idol is Lionel Messi.
Tshogofatso Motlogelwa: The TUT veteran played in the 2021 and 2022 editions of women's varsity football and has had a brilliant tournament despite TUT not qualifying for the semi-finals. She has four goals to her name and earned the FNB Player of the Match award in their game against DUT where she scored a brace. Her favourite player is Phil Foden.
