WHAT IS THE GOLDEN FOOT?

The Golden Foot is a prestigious international award given every year, since 2003, to the best of all champions in football history. The award can be won only once and in order to be among the Golden Foot candidates, the candidate athletes, in addition to still having to be active, must be at least 28 years old.


Every year, along with the main prize, the Football Legends and the Prestige award are awarded too.
The Prestige prize and Legends are chosen by the Golden Foot Commission.

A GREAT NEWS

In the last few years, women’s football has become a protagonist of the international football scene with a regular growth and development. The Golden Foot Commission will also give visibility to this great movement, establishing and starting from 2022 the Golden Foot award also for the women’s category.

THE FORMAT

The athlete who wins the Golden Foot award will be remembered forever. In our unique and inimitable format, in fact, the footprints of the winners are placed on the Promenade of the Champions in Monte Carlo. A place where you can retrace the history of football and admire the other footprints of all the greatest champions of this sport.
