The title Footballer of the Year (German: Fußballer des Jahres) has been awarded in Germany since 1960. In 1996 the title Women's Footballer of the Year was awarded for the first time. Both awards are determined by a poll of German football journalists from the Association of German Sports Journalists (Verband der Deutschen Sportjournalisten) and the publication kicker.[1] Eligible are German players abroad and players in Germany.

In 2004, the Brazilian Ailton became the first foreign player to attain this honour. The most recent titleholders are Bastian Schweinsteiger from Bayern Munich and Martina Müller from VfL Wolfsburg.
