At the end of each FIFA Women's World Cup final tournament, several awards are presented to the players and teams which have distinguished themselves in various aspects of the game.[1]

Awards

There are currently six awards:

  • the Golden Ball for the best overall player of the tournament (first awarded in 1991);
  • the Golden Boot (formerly known as the Golden Shoe) for the top goalscorer of the tournament (first awarded in 1991);
  • the Golden Glove (formerly known as the Best Goalkeeper) for the best goalkeeper of the tournament (first awarded in 2003);
  • the FIFA Young Player Award for the best player of the tournament under 21 years of age at the start of the calendar year (first awarded in 2011);
  • the FIFA Fair Play Award for the team with the best record of fair play during the tournament (first awarded in 1991);
  • the All-Star Squad for the best squad of players of the tournament (first awarded in 1999).

Additionally, there is one award voted on by fans after the conclusion of the tournament:

  • the Goal of the Tournament for the fans' best goal scored during the tournament (first awarded in 2007).

Two awards are now defunct, which were voted on by fans after the conclusion of the tournament:

  • the Most Entertaining Team for the team that entertained the fans the most during the tournament (awarded in 2003 and 2007);
  • the Dream Team for the fans' best manager and eleven-player line-up of the tournament (awarded in 2015).

Golden Ball

The Golden Ball award is presented to the best player at each FIFA World Cup final, with a shortlist drawn up by the FIFA technical committee and the winner voted for by representatives of the media. Those who finish as runners-up in the vote receive the Silver Ball and Bronze Ball awards as the second and third most outstanding players in the tournament respectively.[2]

Golden Boot

The Golden Boot Award goes to the top goalscorer of the FIFA World Cup. It was introduced as the Golden Shoe at the 1991 FIFA Women's World Cup and renamed to Golden Boot in 2011.[3]

If more than one player finishes the tournament with the same number of goals, the tie goes to the player who has contributed the most assists (with the FIFA Technical Study Group deciding whether an assist is to be counted as such). If there is still a tie, the award goes to the player who has played the least amount of time (most goals per minute).[3]

Silver and Bronze Boots are awarded to the second- and third-placed players.[3]

Golden Glove

Since 2011, the Golden Glove Award recognizes the best goalkeeper of the tournament. In 2003 and 2007, a Best Goalkeeper award was given, and in 1999 two goalkeepers were named to an All-Star Team. The FIFA Technical Study Group recognises the top goalkeeper of the tournament based on the player's performance throughout the final competition.[4] Although goalkeepers have this specific award for their position, they are eligible for the Golden Ball as well.

The FIFA Young Player Award is given to the best player in the tournament who is at most 21 years old. For the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup this meant that the player had to have been born on or after 1 January 1998. The FIFA Technical Study Group recognises the Best Young Player of the tournament based on the player's performances throughout the final competition.
