Kansas City Current midfielder Debinha named as finalist for 2023 NWSL MVP, presented by Bud Light

The National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) announced the finalists for the 2023 NWSL Awards, presented by Bud Light. Kansas City Current midfielder Debinha was named as one of five finalists for the 2023 NWSL Most Valuable Player (MVP). The 2023 NWSL Awards are voted upon in two rounds with fans having the opportunity to participate in the final round of the voting process.

Vote Debinha

In the preliminary round of voting, players, owners, general managers, coaches and the media voted on individual awards to determine the finalists. The preliminary round used a weighted scale, broken down by players (50%), owners/GMs/coaches (25%) and media (25%).  

Signed to Kansas City as a free agent before the 2023 season, Debinha did not take long to make her mark with the Current. Her nine regular season goals set a club record and ranked third in the league, and she recorded the club’s first brace when she scored two goals in four minutes against NJ/NY Gotham on April 30.

In addition to the NWSL MVP, fans are able to vote for their choices in the following categories: Defender of the Year, Goalkeeper of the Year, Rookie of the Year, presented by Ally, Coach of the Year and the Best XI, presented by Mastercard.

Fans wishing to vote on the individual award winners, Best XI and Best XI Second Team can access the voting ballot here. All votes must be submitted by Friday, October 27 at 12 p.m. ET. The final round of voting uses a weighted scale of players (40%), owners/GMs/coaches (25%), media (25%) and fans (10%).

Award winners will be announced in the days surrounding the 2023 NWSL Championship match, which is set to kick off Saturday, November 11 at 7 p.m. CT at Snapdragon Stadium in San Diego, California. The contest will air live on CBS Television Network and stream on Paramount+ and internationally on Watch.NWSLSoccer.com.
