Paraguayan Footballer of the Year
The Paraguayan Footballer of the Year is an award given to the best Paraguayan professional football player every year. The award began officially in 1997 and it is presented by Paraguayan newspaper Diario ABC Color. Players that participate in this award can play in any professional football club in the world (they don't necessarily have to be Paraguayan football clubs) and have to obviously be either Paraguayan-born or Paraguayan-naturalised players.
