FIFA, Budweiser and Twitter are making it easier for fans to vote for the Man of the Match Award during the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The partnership is a continuation of Man of the Match voting during the 2014 World Cup. The new Twitter voting platforms will offer an enhanced visual voting portal and will update to include active players on the pitch. Voting opens as soon as the first half of each match ends, via the voting portal at FIFA’s official @FIFAWorldCup on Twitter. Fans can vote, and even change their vote, until the match ends. Fans will simply choose the player they feel deserves to win the Man of the Match award and submit a vote via Twitter. Budweiser Man of the Match voting is available in five languages – English, Spanish, French, German and Portuguese. When voting concludes, @FIFAWorldCup will tweet the name of the winner as well as video of the match action and an interview with the Man of the Match.
