BSA rewards excellence and achievement within Belgian Subbuteo with a series of awards in various sectors, with the major individual accolades handed out in late August.

  • BSA Super League (National Division 1) Subbuteo Awards
  • BSA League Subbuteo Award

BSA Men’s Player of the Year
BSA Women’s Player of the Year

Created in partnership with Belgian Sports Media (BSM) group, these awards recognise the best players, irrespective of nationality, playing for a club within the territory of a BSA member association during the past season. Players are judged on their performances in all competitions – domestic, continental and international – by a jury of sports journalists representing each of the BSA member county associations, and coaches of clubs in the previous season’s BSA Super League and BSA League. Coaches are not allowed to vote for players from their own team.

BSA Super League Goalkeeper of the Season
BSA Sup League Defender of the Season
BSA Super League Midfielder of the Season
BSA Super League Forward of the Season
BSA League Player of the Season

Five competition-specific prizes, awarded for the first time in 2017, complement the existing BSA Men’s and Women’s Player of the Year awards. The awards will be presented during the relevant competition’s group stage draw ceremony.

Centurions

Since September 2017, BSA has presented a special award, comprising a commemorative cap and medal, to those players who have appeared xx times or more for their county.

Developing the game

The Belgian body bestows awards on member associations for outstanding work.

The BSA HatTrick Awards

Development projects in the 43 BSA member associations are recognised by the BSA HatTrick Awards. Five award areas have been drawn up: Best Investment Project; Best Social Project; Best Special Project; Best Women’s Subbuteo Development Project; and Best Host Project. Criteria include mid to long-term legacy, the impact of Subbuteo’s development in the country and the impact on specific social target groups.

KISS Marketing Awards

Marketing is an essential component in Subbuteo, and BSA recognises associations’ marketing prowess through the annual KISS Marketing Awards – staged under the auspices of BSA’s Knowledge & Information Sharing Scenario (KISS). Award categories are Best Brand Activation; Best Fan Engagement Campaign; Best Commercial Partnership; Best Grassroots Marketing Campaign and Best Women’s Subbuteo Marketing Campaign. Awards for creativity and innovation are also given in each category.

BSA Grassroots Awards

Another crucial area of Subbuteo is the game’s grassroots – without a solid foundation, Subbuteo cannot flourish. Subbuteo Table Football is available for everyone, and much sterling work is being undertaken in counties throughout Belgium. Excellence in this crucial sector is recognised by the BSA Grassroots Awards. BSA rewards the winners with gold, silver and bronze prizes in three key areas – best leader, best project and best grassroots club.
