MEDIA 21 & Football

In 2004, the Northern Football Association, Media 21 Premier League was formed with Media 21 sponsoring all prize money for the highest league. In addition, Media 21 also created a lifetime achievement award to
honour North Zone Coaches and Managers who have given so much time for so many years to football as a labour of love. The awardee receives $10,000 along with a plaque.
Media 21 also provides offi cials of the league with uniforms which adds to the professionalism of the team. 
The league has grown from 12 teams in 2004 to 19 teams in 2007 and there has also been a signifi cant increase in the number of youth teams to date. 
Media 21 Limited has also ceased the issuing of challenge trophies, allowing each winning team to keep their award. In 2006, we elevated the Fair Play Trophy to the level of Team of the Year and added awards for Goalkeeper of the Year and Referee of the Year.
We continue to support and sponsor the NFA.
