[CONCACAF AWARDS]The Ballon d'Or, first awarded in 1956, was originally restricted to European players playing in Europe. El Rey de América is given to the best player playing in South America. CAF (Africa) and the AFC (Asia) have awards. Now, finally, Concacaf has its own awards.

Fifteen Americans plus U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann are among the nominees in six award categories. The awards will be handed out following balloting by national team coaches and captains, media and fans.
