Titans of coaching across the world of women’s football have in recent years been celebrated for their dedication, success and role as ambassadors for the women’s game.
Dutch coach Sarina Wiegman was recognised as The Best FIFA Women’s Coach 2017 for her remarkable achievements with the Leeuwinnen, which saw her lift the UEFA Women’s EURO.
A list of ten candidates for The Best FIFA Women’s Coach 2018 award - based on their respective achievements during the period from 7 August 2017 to 24 May 2018 inclusive - will be compiled by a panel of experts representing all of FIFA’s confederations and revealed on 23 July. From that shortlist, key members of the women’s footballing community, namely journalists, fans, national team coaches and captains, will vote for the winner, with the final three nominees to be announced at a later date.
All award winners will be revealed at The Best FIFA Football Awards show in London on 24 September.
