The voting period starts on 24 July and commences on 10 August, and will be decided by four voting panels, namely: media representatives, national team coaches, and national team captains, while the general public is also allowed to vote on the official Federation Internationale de Football Association website.

The three finalists for each award will be revealed at a later date, with the winners to be announced in a ceremony in London on September 24.

France coach Didier Deschamps and compatriot Zinedine Zidane, who led Real Madrid to a third successive Champions League title, headlined the 11 candidates in the running for men's coach of the year.

Argentine forward Messi topped the scoring charts with 34 goals in Barcelona's third La Liga title win in the last four seasons.

Lyon boss Reynald Pedros is one of 10 nominees for the best women's coach.
