The UEFA Team of the Year is a football award given by UEFA through a poll on its official website. This award started in 2001 to allow users and visitors of the organization's website to choose their own eleven players and a coach based on their overall performances in European club football. The UEFA Team of the Year poll for 2009 will be the ninth edition of the award, which has seen nearly 12 million votes cast in previous editions of this popular poll.

In the 2007 poll, UEFA and its official site allowed its users an additional option of donating to the International Committee of the Red Cross to support landmine victims in Afghanistanmarker.

Selection Process

The writers at the website construct a shortlist of sixty footballers and coaches who have performed well in European club competition for that particular year. Users then go on the website and cast their vote of a lineup consisting of eleven players (including a goalkeeper, four defenders, four midfielders, and two strikers) and a coach based on who they believed excelled in European football.

After the votes are cast, they are tallied and the final team are announced on the website itself.

Appearance records

The player with the most appearances in the team is Thierry Henry who has appeared five times. Second are Alessandro Nesta and Carles Puyol (four times). They are followed by several players with three appearances: Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldinho, Pavel Nedvěd, Gianluigi Buffon, Steven Gerrard, Cristiano Ronaldo, and John Terry.

The most consecutive appearances in the team is four for Thierry Henry (2001–04).

The teams with the most player appearances (not including manager appearances) are Milan and Barcelona, both with 14 appearances. They are followed by Real Madrid (10), Juventus (9), Arsenal (8), and Liverpool (6).

The manager with the most appearances is José Mourinho, with three appearances (two with Porto, one with Chelsea). He is followed by Alex Ferguson.
