Best Female Soccer Player ESPY Award

The Best Female Soccer Player ESPY Award was presented annually between 2002 and 2004 to the female soccer (association football) player adjudged to be the best in a given calendar year among those contesting the sport on the professional or international level. The award, as the Best Male Soccer Player ESPY Award, evolved from the Best Soccer Player ESPY Award, which was awarded in 2000 and 2001, and the latter once more absorbed the gender-specific awards in 2005.

During the award's three years, the voting panel comprised variously fans, who participated through Internet balloting; sportswriters and broadcasters, sports executives, and retired sportspersons, termed collectively experts; and ESPN personalities. The ESPY Awards ceremony was conducted in June and awards conferred reflected performance and achievement over the twelve months previous to presentation.[1]
