The Best Goal award of the 1st matchday was awarded to Vasil Shkurtaj playing for FC Niki Volou, who topped the competition organised by Super League, the Panhellenic Association of Professional Players (PSAP) and NOVA. After the ceremony, the Niki Volos player stated the following:
"Unfortunately the two losses my team has suffered do not allow me to be as happy as I wished to be for this award. I wish to thank those that voted for me. I hope I will score more important goals in the future that will help my team win points.
This goal gave me confidence and I wish I will score more similar goals. It is an honour for me to be receiving this award from Mr Trevisan. I know him, I have been informed who he is and it is an honour to be presented with the award by him."
