- London to host The Best FIFA Football Awards 2017
- Zurich hosted inaugural edition
- Ceremony to take place on Monday 23 October
The city is steeped in footballing history both on and off the pitch. The Laws of the Game were first formalised in 1863 in the city, making London the birthplace of the modern game. On Wembley's hallowed turf, England lifted the FIFA World Cup™ in 1966, while a vast number of unforgettable FA Cup Finals have been played at the stadium which has also played host to the European Cup/UEFA Champions League final on no fewer than seven occasions.
All of this makes London a perfect host city for the upcoming The Best FIFA Football Awards, with the stars of the beautiful game set to descend on the city for the ceremony, on Monday 23 October 2017.
