A unique achievement
The Golden Foot award is an international career award only for at least 29-year-old football players, who stand out for their sport results (both as single players and with their team), for their personality and for the esteem of the public and football experts. The winner is chosen out of a ten nominees list decided by a jury consisting of the Golden Foot media partners representatives and of the fans from all over the world who give their preferential vote through the official site.
The peculiarity of this award is that the winner leaves a permanent mould of his footprints on “The Champions Promenade”, a sort of “Walk of Fame” of the international football on the seafront of the Principality of Monaco. Therefore, a football player can win the Golden Foot award only once. Golden Foot prize-giving is and event under the High Patronage of H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco.
