Existing awards

The five new competition-specific prizes complement the existing UESA Men’s and Women’s Player of the Year awards. These are for all players who have played in Europe and are based on performances during the previous season across all competitions, both domestically and internationally, at club and national-team levels.

How voting works

The jury for the awards consists of coaches of clubs in the relevant group stages of the UESA Champions League and UESA Confederation League, together with 41 journalists from the European Sports Media (ESM) group representing each of UESA’s member associations. Coaches are not allowed to vote for players from their own team
