Golden Boy Award 2023 All 100 Nominees

The Golden Boy Award, which honours the top Under-21 player located in Europe, is one of the most prestigious awards in European football. Some of the most well-known players in the sport, like Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Erling Haaland, have received the award since it was established in 2003 by the Italian daily Tuttosport.

 

This year, 100 players from 54 different teams and 33 different countries have been nominated for the award. The ultimate winner will be revealed in October after the list is steadily whittled down.

 

The award was created in 2003 by the Italian sports weekly Tuttosport. Bild (Germany), Blick (Switzerland), A Bola (Portugal), l'Équipe (France), France Football (France), Marca (Spain), Mundo Deportivo (Spain), Ta Nea (Greece), Sport Express (Russia), De Telegraaf (Netherlands), and The Times (United Kingdom) are among the newspapers that currently take part in voting. Each jury may choose five candidates, and they will award the candidate they believe to be the most remarkable 10 points, followed by 7 for second place, 5 for third, 3 for fourth, and 1 for fifth place.

 

Some of the most promising young players in Europe are expected to compete closely for the Golden Boy Award in 2023. A panel of journalists representing diverse media outlets from throughout the continent will select the ultimate winner. Following are the 100 nominees:
