Two of the #PremiosLaLiga to be presented at the ceremony will be the LaLiga World Player accolades, which will be awarded to the players who draw the most votes from among the LaLiga Santander and LaLiga 1|2|3 nominees, all of whom bear witness to the league's international character and global make-up.
The nominees for the LaLiga World Player award in the LaLiga Santander category are: Diego Godin, Keylor Navas, Luis Suarez, Cedric Bakambu, Fayçal Fajr, Carlos Kameni, Mathew Ryan, Takashi Inui and Guillermo Ochoa. Meanwhile, the LaLiga 1|2|3 shortlist comprises Alexander Szymanowski, Darwin Machis, Dani Hernandez, Mamadou Kone, Lago Junior, Razak Brimah, Daisuke Suzuki and Giorgi Aburjania.
LaLiga's online channels will be used to determine the winner, with fans able to vote on www.laliga.es/en or on Twitter: @LaLiga and @LaLigaEN.
The stars who receive the most votes will be crowned the inaugural winners of the LaLiga World Player awards at the gala on 24 October. The inception of these new accolades reflects the increasingly international nature of LaLiga, which boasts footballers from five continents.
