London set to host The Best FIFA Football Awards


Top players, coaches, fans, goals, and acts of fair play will be recognised in London when the eighth edition of The Best FIFA Football Awards is held in one of the world’s most passionate football cities.

On Monday, January 15, 2024, members of the global football family will gather for a glittering ceremony to honour outstanding members of the sport.

The event will mark the third time that FIFA has held the awards ceremony in London, after the 2016 and 2017 events were staged in the city.

The nominees for eight of The Best awards were announced in September 2023. From these shortlists, three finalists in a majority of categories have been selected by an international jury comprising of four groups: national team coaches, national team captains, specialist journalists, and fans who voted on FIFA’s official website.

Over one million fan votes were recorded worldwide.

Selections from the four voting groups – coaches, captains, journalists, and fans – each count for 25 per cent of the total vote, irrespective of the number of voters from each group.

FIFA will announce the finalists for key award categories over the coming weeks.
