The 2014 League Bloggers Awards (LBA) will take place at the Sheraton Hotels and Towers in Lagos on 15 December.
According to the CEO of LBA, Ojeikere Aikhoje, the award night for actors in Nigeria’s top flight, the Glo Premier League, will have players, coaches and clubs vie for awards in 16 categories.
Aikhoje also revealed that the nominees for the 16 categories will be made public on Friday.
“The League Bloggers Awards event for this year’s ending season in the Glo Premier League will come up on 15 December, and we want to make it a glamorous one at that. There will be awards up for grabs in 16 categories but one of them is already concluded and there is no dispute about that. The highest goalscorer award will go to Mfon Udoh of Enyimba for scoring 23 goals in a single season – the first player to do so. But the other 15 are up for grabs.
“The most prestigious among those 15 awards is the Player of the Season, which we are sure everyone will be looking forward to. As for the nominations into each categories, we had to painstakingly review them with some of the best minds in the league including players, coaches, a handful of league writers and even highly-placed administrators in the top flight to come up with the names. By noon of Friday, 28 November, 2014, the nominees for the 16 categories will be announced”, he said.
The 2014 LBA like its previous edition remains a black tie event. Last year, Kano Pillars midfielder, Rabiu Ali, emerged Player of the Season.
