Days before FIFA’s Ballon d’Or Gala, the world is to witness a more exclusive Football Awards Ceremony: The Globe Soccer Awards 2015.
On 27 December, 2015, Dubai will host the 7th edition of Globe Soccer Awards, which will crown the world’s best footballer, team, referee, and GCC’s best.
The Awards in Dubai have become increasingly meaningful and important. Their creation remains linked to the desire to recognize the work of everyone who works in football. Globe Soccer decided it should acknowledge to the wider international public the quality of the game’s agents and directors and those who are most closely involved in organizing transfers and creating great champions and great teams.
The main categories at the Globe Soccer Awards 2015 are:
- Best Referee of the Year
- Best GCC Player of the Year – presented by Kooora
- Player Career Award
- Best Agent of the Year
- Best Coach of the Year
- Director career Award
- Best Club of the Year
- Best Media Attraction in Football – presented by Dubai Sports Channel
- Best Player of the Year
- Best Academy of the Year
- Best European player in Asia – promoted directly by UEFA together with the Asian Confederation
The jury of the awards includes well known names like Luis Figo, Demetrio Albertini, Fabio Capello, Antonio Conte, and Adriano Galliani.
The nominees for the above mentioned categories include Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, FC Barcelona, Juventus FC, and the best in the game for the year of 2015.
The list of people attending the ceremony will include many famous names, including Lionel Messi himself (check attendees here).
However, rumor has it that Cristiano Ronaldo and Gianluigi Buffon will be surprise guests. If that happens, it will be Dubai’s best football moment in 2015 with Messi and Ronaldo facing off.
Other rumors, or actually confirmed but not announced news around the ceremony, suggest that Karl-Heinz Rummenigge will receive award for best club president, while Barcelona and Messi will win the best team and player awards.
The seventh edition of Globe Soccer will be held in Dubai on 27 December 2015 in one of the city’s most exclusive hotels, the Madinat Jumeirah Resort, whose ample facilities will be dedicated solely to the conference. The awards ceremony will take place during the official gala dinner, all set against the fascinating backdrop of Dubai.
