World 11

By the players, for the players

The FIFA FIFPRO Men's World 11 and FIFA FIFPRO Women’s World 11 consist of the best footballers in the current game – voted by the players, for the players.

What you should know

Players are free to choose any of their peers

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

How the players cast their votes

FIFPRO and player unions distribute unique links that will give players from all professional football clubs access to the digital voting platform.

A genuine World 11

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