The UEFA awards are a set of annual prizes given to individual players and coaches,

Usually announced at the Champions League group stage draw ceremony,

there are also categories devoted to the best goalkeeper, defender, midfielder and forward.

Winners are decided by a jury, which comprises the 32 coaches of the teams that competed in the 2020-21 Champions League group stage and 55 journalists from UEFA’s 55 member associations.

Coaches are not allowed to vote for their own players.
