Behind the scenes at The Best 2017

  • ​ took you behind the scenes at The Best in London last year

  • We had exclusive footage from the Green Carpet and photo booth

  • Look back at The Best of this high level access

With The Best FIFA Football Awards™ set to return to London in September this year, FIFA's digital platforms will bring you all the very best footage from behind the scenes. This will continue a fine tradition established at past editions, as we showed you world football's megastars as you had never seen them before: on the Green Carpet, in the interview room and even in a specially-designed photo booth!

So grab your VIP pass and reminisce with us, as we remember the top behind the scenes videos from the 2017 event.

The Best ... unseen!

You read and watch our exclusive interviews, but what happens when the cameras are rolling before the questions are asked?

​The Best on the Green Carpet

An event of undoubted star quality requires a suitably glitzy entrance. Red carpet? But our game is played on green grass!

The Best FIFA Photo Booth

As the stars gathered at the London Palladium, we invited them into our exclusive Photo Booth to have some fun in front of the camera.

​The Best Fan Focus Group ticket winners

It wasn't all about the big names on the night though, as two lucky supporters of the beautiful game took their seat in the London Palladium after participating in the FIFA Fan Focus Group.

​FIFA delivers historic Hackney handover

The day before the main event, FIFA's Deputy Secretary General Zvonimir Boban was joined by former England captain Ray Wilkins - who sadly passed away in April 2018 - to deliver a legacy for The Best: new equipment for the historic Hackney Marshes footballing complex in London.
