The Globe Soccer Awards are football awards organised by the European Club Association (ECA) in conjunction with the European Association of Player's Agents (EFAA) and delivered by the organisation Globe Soccer.[1][2] The award ceremony is held in the city of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, which brings together the main representatives of the world of football (FIFA, ECA, UEFA), the League of Arab Emirates, major world clubs and their managers, encouraging an exchange of views on the world of football as a major goal, alongside transfer-related issues and the football market.[1][3][4]
