The UEFA Fan's Team of the Year is a football award given by UEFA through a poll on its official website. This award started in 2001[1] and only allow its users[2] of the organization's website to choose their own eleven players and a coach based on their overall performances in European club football and international competitions.

Selection process

Until 2011, the writers at the website had constructed a short-list of sixty footballers and coaches[1] who have performed well in European club competitions, domestic competitions and international tournaments for that particular year. Users then cast their vote of a line-up consisting of eleven players (including a goalkeeper, four defenders, four midfielders, and two forwards) and a coach based on who they believed excelled in European football. After the selection is made, the user also has to select one of the players to be the captain of their team.

The format of the vote was changed in 2012 - now users first choose their preferred formation (4-4-2, 3-5-2, 3-4-3, 4-3-3 or 5-3-2), and then choose the relevant number of players for each position. The voters have a choice between 4 goalkeepers, 12 defenders, 12 midfielders and 12 forwards. The voting for best coach was discontinued.

After the votes are cast, they are tallied and the final team is announced on the UEFA website.

The player with the most appearances in the team is Cristiano Ronaldo, having appeared fourteen times. Second is Lionel Messi, having appeared eleven times. Sergio Ramos comes third with eight appearances.
