The 2022 FIFA FIFPRO World 11 was voted for by professional players from around the world. FIFPRO and affiliated player unions distributed unique links that gave players access to a digital voting platform.
Footballers picked the three players who, in their opinion, were the most outstanding in each of the following positions: goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders and forwards.
The goalkeeper, three defenders, three midfielders and three forwards with the most votes in their position made it into the World 11. The 11th spot was assigned to the outfield player with the next highest number of votes.
Players were free to choose any of their peers. The voting tool contained a suggestion list, but players were allowed to add other names if they were not mentioned on that list.
