Nine of the 12 categories now open to public vote – have your say now.

We’re delighted to announce that the shortlists for the 2016 FSF Awards in partnership with Virgin Media are out – and fans can vote and have their say. Seventy-two nominees will battle it out across 12 different categories including ‘Player of the Year’ featuring Sergio Agüero, Dele Alli, Philippe Coutinho, Riyad Mahrez, Mesut Özil and Dimitri Payet. FSF chief executive Kevin Miles said: “Supporters are the bedrock of the professional game and the FSF Awards give fans the chance to have their say on the best in the game.”

FSF NC member Dave Kelly said: “We’re here because we’re part of the football family, if it’s their fight it’s our fight.”
