The annual event, hosted by the Dubai Sports Council (DSC), will include a session during the Conference with world-renowned coaches highlighting game plans and how to achieve victories in the game, while the annual awards gala, goes beyond honouring the top players to acknowledge everyone who contributes to the success of the game.

Since the launch of the awards in 2010, new award categories have been introduced, reflecting the development of the sport and its diverse international appeal. In keeping with this tradition, new award categories have been added to the 2022 line-up. The CNN Off The Pitch Award will acknowledge the achievements of an individual, club or other soccer organisation for their impact on wider society, culture, their charitable work or as a role model for others. The Power Horse Emerging Player of the Year Award will recognise youth players who stood out in the last season with their incredible performances.

It sheds light on professional experiences and how to create a successful approach at all levels of the sport; from playing, training and team building to establishing renowned academies following the latest professional models.
“This year’s event will be full of new elements, which will be an important addition to our joint efforts in developing the sport of football.”
Tommaso Bendoni, CEO of the Dubai Globe Soccer Awards, said, “We launched the Globe Soccer Awards in Dubai in 2010, and our 13-year partnership with the Dubai Sports Council has helped the awards go from strength to strength and to reach a growing global audience. Dubai has consistently granted us the privilege of celebrating football and recognising the professionals who work passionately in the name of the sport, and I am honoured that we will be continuing to hold our prestigious event in Dubai over the coming years.”
