The UEFA Club Football Awards were awards given by UEFA to the most outstanding performers of the European club football season. The awards were presented in August each year at a special gala in Monaco ahead of the UEFA Super Cup. Since 2005, the awards were presented at the UEFA Champions League draw. Inter Milan is the only team whose players won all of the available awards in the same season (2009–10 season). UEFA stopped giving out the awards after the 2009/10 season. For the 2010–11 season, it was replaced by the newly formed UEFA Best Player in Europe Award.
