The KPL Awards, also known as the KPL Footballer of the Year Awards (FOYA), refer to an awards ceremony held to honour association football players, coaches, officials and journalists participating in the Kenyan Premier League. They are conferred by the Football Kenya Federation.

History

Winners are highlighted in bold and placed in non-indented bullets ( ). Nominees are placed in order from first to third place in indented bullets. If there is more than one winner (nominees both placed in non-indented bullets) or more than one runner-up (nominees both placed in one indented bullet with a line break separating them), then the award was shared between the winners.

The award ceremony was criticised for the manner in which players, coaches and officials were nominated and awarded, with the Football Kenya Federation stating that it took "strong exception to the manner in which winners of the 2014 awards were named".[13] The Standard journalist Rodgers Eshitemi said the awards "will go down as the most shambolic fete ever in Kenya's football history".[14]
