The Guinness Football Manager can exclusively announce their very first Manager of the Month. For the month of August, Dennis Moini from Kampala topped the monthly leader board to win 1,500,000 prize money and a DSTV Walka 7 showing that he has the football knowledge to take on the likes of Roberto Di Matteo as a world class football manager.
Dennis Moini picked a team and scored 328 points to emerge the Manager of the Month. “I am very excited to be the first winner of the game and will continue to play because the reward is real” said Dennis Moini.
Speaking at the awards ceremony, Guinness Brand Manager Phoebe Nakabazzi said, “Congratulations to Dennis Moini, our Guinness Football Manager of the month of August! It’s a great accolade to win the Manager of the Month title and Dennis really showed that he had the confidence to make bold decisions with his fantasy team. He chose a line up of players who scored him top points from their performance this month.”
The Manager of the week awards went to Ibrahim Mutebi, Daily Monitor's sports editor Mark Namanya, Royce Ssenteza and Edgar Twinamasiko who were awarded with DSTV Walka 3.5 and a crate of Guinness each.
“As well as the Manager of the Month, we will also be rewarding fans with big prizes from our partners Multichoice Uganda. Prizes are available for the Manager of the Week, the Best Performing Monthly League and the Best Performing Season League" Nakabazzi added.
