2.7.1. World 11


An award for the players, from the players

The World 11 is all about the players’ voice. They know what it takes to be a top performer in this game and are therefore in the best position to judge the talents and strengths of their peers. That’s what makes the World 11 a truly unique accolade, as it is the only global award that is decided by players only.

What you should know

The players are free to choose any of their peers.

Although the voting tool contains a guidance list with approximately 250 player names, players are also able to add other names if they are not mentioned on that list.

A genuine World11 "team"

The goalkeeper, as well as the three defenders, three midfielders and three forwards who received the most votes will be selected for the World 11. The remaining spot in the World 11 will be assigned to the outfield player with the next highest number of votes who is not selected already.

A digital voting system

FIFPRO and approximately 70 affiliated players unions distribute unique links that will give players from all professional football clubs on the planet access to the digital voting platform.
