The Onze d'Or (alternative name: Onze Mondial European Footballer of the Year) is an association football award handed out by French magazine Onze Mondial since 1976. The award previously honored the best player in Europe, with any player in a European league eligible, but since 2015 it has been awarded to the best French player. Since 1991, there has also been a vote for the best coach of the year.

Onze Mondial's readers select their ideal team of the season, Onze de Onze ("Onze's eleven"), and among those players they choose the top three, who receive the Onze d'Or ("Golden Onze"), Onze d'Argent ("Silver Onze"), and Onze de Bronze ("Bronze Onze") respectively. The awards were based on the previous calendar year until 2009, but moved to a seasonal format beginning with the 2010–11 season, thus no award was presented in 2010.[1] The last European-wide Onze d'Or was awarded in 2012 to Lionel Messi.[2] After a two-year absence, the award returned in 2015 under a new format that recognizes the best French player and coach of the year.[3]

Three players have won the Onze d'Or three times: Michel Platini (1983–85), Zinedine Zidane (1998, 2000–01), and Lionel Messi (2009–12).[2] At the 20-year anniversary of the magazine in 1995, a Super Onze d'Or was chosen among the previous winners; the top five players selected were Michel Platini, Marco van Basten, Diego Maradona, Roberto Baggio, and Romário.[1]

Winners[edit]

Among his record seven Onze awards, Zinedine Zidane won three Onze d'Ors, equal to Michel Platini and Lionel Messi.
