The Players Union ensures that those performing the best on the pitch are rewarded and opinions of players are heard in making the choices. During the season, players vote for the Veikkaus players of the month through the teams’ contact persons in Veikkausliiga, Ykkönen and Naisten Liiga as well as Futsal Liiga.
At the end of the season, the Players Union organises a vote in all of the leagues it represents to select the best player in each league and also the best players for each position. The rewards aim to honour and showcase players who have excelled in different positions who have won the respect of other players through their performances.
It is important that the players’ voices are heard when selecting the best players. After all, they are the best experts in the game. The cooperation with the Players Union in selecting the Veikkausliiga players of the month has worked excellently. - Timo Marjamaa, CEO of Veikkausliiga
