The title Footballer of the Year (German: Fußballer des Jahres) has been awarded in Germany since 1960. In 1996, the title Women's Footballer of the Year (German: Fußballerin des Jahres) was awarded for the first time.[1] Both awards are determined by a poll of German football journalists from the Association of German Sports Journalists (Verband Deutscher Sportjournalisten) and the publication kicker.[2] Eligible are German players and non-German players playing in Germany.[3]

The current titleholders are Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich and Pernille Harder of VfL Wolfsburg.[4][5] In 2004, Brazilian Aílton became the first foreign player to attain the honour.[6]
