The star-studded event takes place in London on Thursday 30 May.

It will be hosted by former Lioness Eni Aluko and Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher.

And there are a ton of awards up for grabs.

One of the most fiercely contested categories sees TNT Sports star Woods and CBS Sport favourite Abdo competing for the Women’s Football Broadcaster or Journalist of the Year.

They are joined by a host of other top names including Alex Scott, Emma Jones and Reshmin Chowdhury.

Meanwhile, Man United and England goalie Earps, who won in 2023, leads the nominees for Player of the Year.

She is up against club teammate Nikita Parris, with the likes of Chelsea’s Laura James and Arsenal’s Katie McCabe also in the mix.

Elsewhere, Bolton chairman Brittain has been nominated for a special recognition award after transforming the club’s fortunes.

Nearly four years after they were liquidated, Bolton are now third in League One thanks to Brittain’s stewardship.

Other categories include International Football Player of the Year, Manager of the Year and Club of the Year.
