The Best Explained

On its 25th anniversary of honouring world football’s top performers, FIFA has decided to take the game’s most prestigious individual award to a new, modern direction. One that reflects the organisation’s mission of bringing football centre stage.

The Awards Show

The Best FIFA Football Awards™ were held for the very first time on 9 January 2017, the latest incarnation of the annual awards events that FIFA has been staged since 1991, when the FIFA World Player Gala was founded. 

Trophy

FIFA commissioned the design of a new platinum-coated trophy to honour The Best at the inaugural The Best FIFA Football Awards™. The trophy, with identical versions for both men’s and women’s players and coaches, has a shape which resembles the iconic FIFA World Cup™ Trophy
