While the FIFA World Cup™ is undoubtedly the most watched and popular sporting event in the world, with many countries dedicating significant resources to both bidding for and hosting the event, FIFA recognises that not all countries have the capacity or hosting capabilities for an event of this scale.
FIFA recognises excellence in all of its competitions by the presentation of awards on the final day of each respective tournament. Find out which legends of the game have been honoured over the years in being officially recognised as the best player, top goalscorer and best goalkeeper, among others.
The Best FIFA Football Awards honour the game’s outstanding performers. The leading players and coaches in the men’s and women’s games receive The Best trophy, with awards for the year’s best goal, most impressive fan moment and outstanding instance of Fair Play also recognised.
No other sporting event captures the world's imagination
like the FIFA World Cup™. Ever since the first tentative
competition in Uruguay in 1930, FIFA's flagship has constantly
grown in popularity and prestige.
The fitting culmination to what was, in the eyes of most
observers, the quintessential FIFA World Cup
™ tournament. This match had all the ingredients of a
great final - goals, end-to-end football and star players. In the
end, Pele, Jairzinho and Carlos Alberto got the better of
Facchetti, Rivera and Riva in a match which, for over an hour, was
much closer than the final score-line suggests.
