Baroka FC and Golden Arrows, who have been impressive this season, have a chance of beating the league’s big guns to the Q1 prize. Baroka and Arrows are the only two teams in the league that are yet to lose a match this season.

The two teams are sitting in first and second position respectively on the Absa Premiership log. Baroka are at the summit of the PSL log with 15 points from four wins and three draws from their seven matches.

In second place, Arrows are on 13 points from three wins and four draws from their seven matches. Each PSL team that wins a quarter of the Q-Innovation is rewarded with R1.5 million in prize money from the league.  

The PSL’s Q-Innovation is divided into Q1 (8 games), Q2 (7 games), Q3 (8 games) and Q4 (7 games). Interestingly, Baroka and Arrows will face each other when the PSL resume after the FIFA international break.

@LeCowhlohlo, it is an incentive to all teams, but only teams that meet the set criteria get the price.

@LeCowhlohlo, if you look at it, the amount they give is not that big, If you look at it, the amount they give is not that much, at a big club, It does not make a lot of difference.

@LeCowhlohlo, I wouldn't say it is necessary a motivation, I call it an incentive for a team that meet a set criteria.

@LeCowhlohlo, I heard nyawana talking about it last season, in fact, he was telling nappyrena idiots that free agents were looking forward to winning Q4, but end up not winning it. Yeah, that was the last time I heard a player talking about it.

Kgoloko Thobejane...is doing better this time around,as it looks like they will not fight for relegation..their display is good,they have a good fighting spirit and importantly they defend well...as a team..

after 12 games these small pretenders teams they will be sitting pretty on position 4 and 5 the way their players received yellow card is like any buddy businesses,second bookable offence will hunt their key players by that time Baroka should prepare by paying medical as we see how Thobejane take football by heart

@setlaboswana I take it as useless reward because it help a team with nothing. It seems like players are not serious about it for the way lot of teams losing left & right through center ,which means this q-innovation it has no what we call motivation to the players.
