Top three nominees revealed for 2022/23 UEFA Women’s Player of the Year award!

Following the announcement last week of the nominees for the UEFA men’s player and coach awards, UEFA has today announced the names of the top three nominees for the 2022/23 UEFA Women’s Player of the Year award. The award winner will be announced at the 2023/24 UEFA Champions League group stage draw ceremony, which will take place on Thursday 31 August at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.

On the same occasion, UEFA will also honour the coach who had the biggest impact during the 2022/23 season with the UEFA Women’s Coach of the Year award.

UEFA Women’s Player of the Year

For the women’s player award, an initial shortlist of players was selected by the UEFA technical observers based on their performance during the 2022/23 season at club and/or national team level. The top three nominees were voted for by a jury composed of the coaches of clubs participating in the group stage of UEFA Women’s Champions League, together with the coaches of the women’s national teams of UEFA’s member associations. A group of journalists selected by the European Sports Media (ESM) were also part of the jury.

Coaches and journalists were asked to select their top three players from the shortlist by allocating them five points, three points and one point respectively. The final result was based on the total number of votes cast by the coaches and the journalists. The coaches were not allowed to vote for players from their own team.

The three players who received the most points are, in alphabetical order:

Aitana BONMATÍ (Spain – FC Barcelona)

Olga CARMONA (Spain – Real Madrid CF)

Sam KERR (Australia – Chelsea FC Women)

The full list of players who received votes is available on UEFA.com .
