This sea­son's best goal­keep­ers, foot­ballers, top scor­ers in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion were cho­sen in a poll. The re­sults of the poll, or­ga­nized by Kur­dis­tan Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion (KFA), were an­nounced on May 28 af­ter the end of the Kur­dis­tan foot­ball sea­son.

KFA an­nu­ally se­lects best foot­ballers of four leagues of premier­ship, first di­vi­sion, youths, and ju­niors.

Pre­mier League

Ac­cord­ing to the poll re­sults, Ah­mad Ma­mun from Zer­a­vani FC was named as the best foot­baller in the pre­mier league af­ter win­ning most of the votes.

Nam­ing Ma­mun as best foot­baller came a weeks af­ter his team won the Kur­dis­tan pre­mier league ti­tle. Dur­ing the sea­son, Ma­mun played a sig­nif­i­cant role in achiev­ing the good re­sults his team needed to win the do­mes­tic league ti­tle, and gave won­der­ful per­for­mances in most of the matches.

Zer­a­vani FC's goal­keeper, Zuher Ab­dul­ja­mal, won the ti­tle of Kur­dis­tan's best goal­keeper.

Sher­wana FC striker Hu­nar Ah­mad was the sea­son's top scorer with 13 goals in 26 games. Ah­mad’s goals were the main rea­son be­hind his club tak­ing eighth place in the Kur­dis­tan league. First Di­vi­sion League Aram Muham­mad from Newroz FC was named as the best goal­keeper of Kur­dis­tan’s First Di­vi­sion League. Baha’addin Bakir from Hal­abja FC was cho­sen as the best foot­baller, while Sh­wan Ka­mal from Dar­bandikhan FC be­came the top scorer with 11 goals.

Youths League

Ah­mad Bashar from Er­bil FC was se­lected as the best goal­keeper; Bizhar Habib from Zer­a­vani FC as the best foot­baller and Ba­hez An­war from Er­bil FC as the top scorer. Ju­niors League Ab­dul­lah Ha­mad from Er­bil FC be­came the best goal­keeper; best foot­baller ti­tle was given to Sar­dar Yaseen from Er­bil FC. Su­laimaniyah FC for­ward, Sa­man Ah­mad, be­came the top scorer with 10 goals.

Teams from Er­bil came out on top, which isn't sur­pris­ing as it is known as the city of sports. Over the last decade, the city has be­come the center for the best foot­ballers be­cause of the large num­ber of teams, es­pe­cially clubs in the Kur­dis­tan pre­mier league. Sports has some­what over­taken pol­i­tics as a na­tional pas­sion. Most par­ents have at least one child who plays foot­ball, as they see it as a route to hope, suc­cess and hap­pi­ness.

Se­lect­ing best foot­ballers, top scor­ers, and best keep­ers takes place an­nu­ally af­ter the do­mes­tic league ends in May. To avoid pre­judg­ments, this year KFF ap­pointed jour­nal­ists to ob­serve the matches and play­ers' per­for­mances.
