People To Vote For CAF Awards
For the 1st time, CAF had given the opportunity for the people to Vote for CAF Awards 2017
For the first time, football fans and the general public have been given the opportunity to have a say in the selection process for the African Player of the Year and Africa’s Finest XI.
Public voting for the two categories will be opened on Sunday, 24 December 2017.
For the African Player of the Year, the public can vote via the CAF website for their preferred choice amongst the top three contenders; Mohamed Salah (Egypt & Liverpool), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Gabon and Borussia Dortmund) and Sadio Mane (Senegal & Liverpool).
The outcome will be tallied with the results from the two earlier phases of the selection process for each of the trio.
On the other hand, voting for Africa’s Finest XI will be done via the CAF facebook page based on a 3-4-3 tactical formation. Voting will be done for specialized positions from 24 December 2017 to 2 January 2018. The nominated players were decided based on the points accrued from the first phase of the voting process.
Details of the votes will be made public at the Aiteo CAF Awards Gala 2017 on Thursday, 4 January 2018 in Accra, Ghana.
