FIFA Football Awards 2019! In a year that was filled with drama, action and excitement across both the men’s and women’s game, The Best FIFA Football Awards 2019 look set to build on the success of 2018’s event and return to Milan bigger and better than ever.
Who has won the race to step onto the podium? This question, for eight of the 11 awards to be handed out at The Best FIFA Football Awards™ in Milan, was answered on Monday 2 September at the fabled San Siro stadium.
Voting from the key voices in the football community – players, coaches, fans and media – helped determine the finalists for The Best FIFA Men’s and Women’s Player and Coach awards, while four more awards will see their final trios announced too.
The biggest night in the world of football is here! The hard work and effort put in by the players throughout the year will be rewarded. The Best FIFA Football Awards 2019 will be held on September 24 at 12 am. This year’s battle will be again between five-time champion Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Following the two in the race is Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk. The United States forward Megan Rapinoe is the favourite for the women’s award.
Constituted in 2016, the Best FIFA Football Awards is aimed at reviving the FIFA World Player of the Year, which was merged with France Football’s Ballon d’Or in 2010 to become the FIFA Ballon d’Or in a six-year partnership.
