Thursday evening saw Orlando Pirates host its Player Awards for the 2017/18 season. It has been four years since the Club last hosted this prestigious ceremony, and how prestigious it was.
Opened by the Chairman, Dr Irvin Khoz
The First Lady of Football, Carol Tshabalala, and Mr Monday Night himself, Thomas Mlambo, were at their charismatic best as they took to the stage to conduct the evening’s festivities at the Barnyard Theatre in Rivonia.
The biggest winner on the night was playmaker Musa Nyatama, who scooped up his own treble as he walked away with the Fans’ Player of the Season, Players’ Player of the Season and Vodacom Player of the Season awards.
The award winners on the night:
Shield Development Player of the Season
LG Reserves Player of the Season
Adidas Golden Boot
Shield Prospect of the Season
Caltex Goal of the Season
Fans’ Player of the Season
Players’ Player of the Season
Vodacom Player of the Season
With the 2017/18 season being coined as the “resurrection” of Orlando Pirates, it goes without saying that the celebration of the night would not have been possible without the Club’s partnerships.

The Club would like to thank all of its sponsors, players, technical staff and, most importantly, the supporters for your continued support and dedication throughout the 2017/18 season.
