The Austrian Footballer of the Year award (German: APA-Fußballerwahl) is an annual football award, established in Austria in 1984 and sponsored by the Austria Press Agency (APA). The coaches of all Austrian Football Bundesliga clubs vote to elect the player of the year. Eligible for selection are all players playing in the Austrian league, as well as any Austrian player playing abroad. The winners for the preceding year are usually announced in January.
