World Soccer Talk Awards: Nomination process

Here’s how it works:

World Soccer Talk has created several categories that span the world of English-language soccer/football culture. Our panel has recommended who to include in the categories. However, we need your help. We’re opening up the nominations to your suggestions and recommendations. Please review the candidates, and if there are any missing, let us know in the comments section before the nominations close on Thursday, June 30th at midnight ET.

Once the deadline has passed, no additional candidates will be added.

Then, on Friday July 1st, the 2022 World Soccer Talk Awards officially opens. Throughout the month of July, soccer fans from around the world get to vote on their favorites in the different categories. After the Awards wrap up on July 31st, we announce the winners on August 1st.
