Women's Football News
After over a month of voting during which almost 6 million votes were cast, the UEFA.com women's Fans' Team of the Year 2020 can now be revealed.
For the 20th year running, football supporters around the world were invited to select their teams from shortlists of 50 elite players playing for clubs in UEFA's 55 member associations in 2020.
As well as the men's poll, fans were also given the chance to select their women's Team of the Year for the first time, reflecting the ever increasing appeal of the women's game.
Four players who are currently at Barclays FA WSL clubs - Lucy Bronze, Magdalena Eriksson, Danielle van de Donk and Pernille Harder - are in the team.
The inaugural UEFA.com Fans' Women's Team of the Year includes six of Olympique Lyonnais' UEFA Women's Champions League title winning squad. The eleven selected players represent six different clubs and seven countries, with France (five players) being the most represented nation.
The team features the 2020 UEFA's Women's Player of the Year Pernille Harder, who inspired VfL Wolfsburg to another German double and UEFA Women's Champions League final before moving to Chelsea later in the year. She also helped Denmark qualify for UEFA Women's EURO 2022 in impressive fashion.
The 50 nominees for the women's and men's edition were selected by the UEFA editorial team, based on the players' performances in UEFA competitions and domestic competitions within UEFA member associations from January to December 2020. Fans had from 30 November 2020 until 6 January 2021 to select their favourite XIs from two shortlists of 50 elite players - five goalkeepers, 15 defenders, 15 midfielders and 15 forwards - all of whom appeared for clubs or national teams in one of UEFA's 55 member associations in 2020.
The two winning sides reflected the votes of the fans in parallel with players' achievements over the course of the calendar year, and were validated based on input from a UEFA technical observer panel throughout the course of the year.
All users who submitted a team will now be entered into a prize draw to win a VIP trip to both the men's and women's UEFA Champions League finals.
