FIFA is introducing gender parity for its awards by adding a women’s goalkeeper category and a female team of the year. The announcement on Monday ensures men and women will be in line for accolades in the same categories at the FIFA Best ceremony in Milan on September 23.

FIFA Deputy Secretary General Zvonimir Boban said, “FIFA is certain that France will host a groundbreaking edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup this year, so I cannot think of a better moment to introduce these new awards. It is yet another step in the right direction to raise the profile of women’s football.”
