The Canadian Soccer Association has announced the list of nominees for its 2013 Canada Soccer player awards. Canadian media and coaches will be asked to select two players – one male and one female – for the Canadian Soccer Association’s top prize, the BMO Canadian Players of the Year award. The award will celebrate Canada’s top-two soccer players in recognition of their 2013 achievements with both the national team and their respective club teams.

Voting for the 2013 BMO Canadian Players of the Year will be split evenly by Canadian media and Canadian coaches from across the country.

Along with the Canadian Players of the Year award, there are two additional awards that celebrate the top young prospects in Canadian soccer. Coaches from across the country will select four young stars from Canada’s World Cup squads – two Canadian U-20 Players of the Year and two Canadian U-17 Players of the Year.

The Canadian U-20 Players of the Year award is open to players eligible for the recent or upcoming FIFA U-20 World Cup events. The male U-20 nominees are born 1993 or later while the female U-20 nominees are born 1994 or later.

Voting for the Canadian U-20 Players of the Year and Canadian U-17 Players of the Year awards will be split evenly by Canadian national staff coaches and all other Canadian coaches.

Voting will begin immediately and will conclude on Saturday 7 December 2013. Voters will be asked to select three players (first place, second place and third place) in each category. All six winners will be announced during the week of 9-13 December 2013.
