The MVP award of the 3rd matchday was awarded to Antonis Georgallides playing for Platanias, who topped the competition organised by Super League, the Panhellenic Association of Professional Players (PSAP) and NOVA. The award was presented by the 2nd Vice-President of FC Platanias, Mr Antonis Kokolodimitrakis.
After the ceremony, the Platanias player stated:
"I wish to thank those that voted for me. I would like to offer my congratulations regarding this initiative since it is really important for us players. This award is an honour for me, but also an honour for the whole club since this was a team effort. Out of the eleven candidates, the fans voted for me. I repeat that this was a team effort. The three points are definitely the best gift for a footballer in any match and I hope we will manage to get them in the next match."
When asked to comment on the fact that goalkeepers rarely win the MVP award since usually the spotlight is on the strikers who score, Antonis Georgallides pointed out that "this is the nature of our job that demands from us to be concentrated so we can help our club. Our goal is to give our 100 percent and this is what I do so I can help my team."
