Orlando Pirates have pocketed a hearty R1.5 million in prize money as the winners of the Absa Premiership Q-Innovation quarterly award.
The Buccaneers were declared Quarter Three (Q3) winners for the 2017/18 season following an impressive run which has seen them win their last five league encounters and emerge as a contender for the Absa Premiership title this season – currently sitting second on the Absa Premiership log.
The Soweto giants won the Quarter (Q3) with 19 points from eight matches: six victories, one draw and one loss.
Bidvest Wits were second on the log – one point shy from the top with 18 points from the same number of games played by Q3 winners. Current log leaders and Quarter Two (2017/18) winners Mamelodi Sundowns finished third with 15 points also from eight games.
The club walks away with R1.5 million prize money. Meanwhile, Pirates will look to maintain their current inspired run of good form when they prepare for their midweek league encounter against SuperSport United on Wednesday night.
