How does the voting work?

The World 11 is voted for by professional players from around the world. In total, nearly 25,000 players from 68 countries voted for the 2022 FIFA FIFPRO World 11.

FIFPRO and affiliated player unions distribute unique links that give players access to a digital voting platform. 

Footballers pick the three players who, in their opinion, were the most outstanding in the 2021/22 season in each of the following positions: goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders and forwards.

The goalkeeper, three defenders, three midfielders and three forwards with the most votes in their position make it into the World 11. The 11th spot is assigned to the outfield player with the next highest number of votes.

Players are free to choose any of their peers. The voting tool contains a suggestion list, but players are allowed to add other names if they are not mentioned on that list.
