The best player and the top goalscorer in the FIFA Under-17 World Championship for the JVC Cup will receive two of the most prestigious individual awards in football: the adidas Golden Ball and the adidas Golden Shoe.

At the end of the tournament, media and other experts will be invited to vote on the best player of the Championship. The votes will be counted during half-time of the Final at the Cairo National Stadium on 21 September, and the winner will be presented with the Golden Ball at the final dinner later that evening. There will be a Silver Ball and Bronze Ball for the two runners-up.

The best goalscorer will be decided on the basis of the number of goals scored, but with the number of assists counting in the event of a tie. In such a case, goals are rewarded with three points each, and assists with one point each. The members of the Technical Study Group, present at each match, will decide which players may be accredited with an assist.

The three top scorers receive a Golden, Silver and Bronze Shoe, also to be presented on 21 September.
