The Belgian professional football awards is a collection of awards given at the end of each season since 1983. Back then, the only award was the Manager of the Year. There are now 5 main awards: Footballer, Footballer (second division), Goalkeeper, Manager and Referee. The previous fifth award, the Young Footballer of the Year Award, was not awarded between 2008–09 and 2012–13. The voters are all the players from the Belgian Pro League as well as the Belgian footballers playing abroad at the highest level. The ceremony is organized together by the paper Sport Foot Magazine and the Belgian Football Association.
