Existing awards

The five new competition-specific prizes complement the existing BSA Men’s and Women’s Player of the Year awards. These are for all players who have played in Belgium and/or Europe and are based on performances during the previous season across all competitions, both domestically and internationally, at club and national-team levels.

How voting works

The jury for the awards consists of coaches of clubs in the relevant BSA Super League and BSA League, together with 43 journalists from the Belgian Sports Media (HSM) group representing each of BSA’s member associations. Coaches are not allowed to vote for players from their own team
