The Soccer Star of the Year is an annual association football award given to the player who is adjudged to have been the best of the season in Zimbabwean football. It was first presented at the end of the 1969 Rhodesian football season, when it was founded as the Rhodesian Soccer Star of the Year; the name changed in 1980. Each year's winner is chosen at the end of the season by a vote amongst football writers from around Zimbabwe. The current holder is Charles Sibanda of FC Platinum, who won the award in 2010 while playing for Motor Action. He is the second Motor Action player to have received the award after 2006 winner Clemence Matawu.
^Changed name to Hwange in 2005. Wankie had been the name of the town of Hwange until 1982, when numerous Zimbabwean place names were changed. Several sports teams named after towns or other geographical features, like Wankie F.C., retained their original names. Some renamed themselves at later dates but others, such as Shabanie Mine (from Zvishavane, Shabani until 1982) and FC Victoria (from Masvingo, formerly Fort Victoria) retain the old names to the present day.
^No award; controversy during the selection process led to the abandonment of the presentation after the 1998–99 season.
