The Kopa Trophy is an annual football award for the world's best young men's player from the previous season. The award is named after former French footballer Raymond Kopa.
It is open for players under the age of 21. The first award was presented in 2018 (and none in 2020). The award is voted on by 32 former Ballon d'Or winners.
