Athletes Unlimited announced today that the GEICO Defensive Player of The Year (DPOY) will be making its return for its inaugural volleyball season, but this time with some added incentive. Athletes Unlimited will be awarding the winner of the award with a $5,000 bonus.

The league has identified the three finalists based on defensive statistics. Now, players and paying members of the Unlimited Club will vote to determine who is crowned the GEICO DPOY. Voting will open on March 27 at 10 a.m. ET, and will close on March 28 at 5 p.m. ET.

“We are proud to be able to offer the GEICO Defensive Player of the Year this additional bonus,” CEO and Co-founder Jon Patricof said. “Too often in sports, defensive play is overlooked. We have been proud to partner with GEICO to highlight the Best Defensive Play in every match during the season and to end the season on this incredible high note by awarding the top defensive player this award.”

The winner will be announced after the completion of the last match of the season during the Athletes Unlimited Volleyball Closing Ceremony on March 29.
