Kedudukan Dunia FIFA adalah sebuah sistem kedudukan bagi pasukan kebangsaan lelaki di dalam bola sepak, yang pada masa ini diketuai oleh Sepanyol. Pasukan-pasukan negara ahliFIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association), badan pentadbir bola sepak dunia, ditempatkan berdasarkan kepada keputusan perlawanan mereka yang menunjukkan hasil pasukan yang paling berjaya diletakkan paling tinggi. Kedudukan ini telah diperkenalkan pada bulan Disember 1992, dan enam pasukan (Argentina, Brazil, Perancis, Jerman, Itali dan Sepanyol) pernah memegang kedudukan teratas, yang mana pasukan Brazil telah lama memegang kedudukan pertama.
The Best Mover of the Year was awarded to the team who made the best progress up the rankings over the course of the year. In the FIFA rankings, this is not simply the team that has risen the most places, but a calculation is performed in order to account for the fact that it becomes progressively harder to earn more points the higher up the rankings a team is. The calculation used is the number of points the team has at the end of the year (z) multiplied by the number of points it earned during the year (y). The team with the highest index on this calculation received the award. The table below shows the top three best movers from each year.
The award has not been an official part of the awards since 2006.
While an official award has not been made for movements since 2006, FIFA has released a list of the 'Best Movers' in the rankings since 2007. However, the calculation methodology had changed to the difference in ranking points over the course of the year (rather than the methodology used in the official award from 1993 to 2006). The results for latter years are based on a similar methodology.
Rankings are published monthly, usually on a Wednesday. The deadline for the matches to be considered is usually the Thursday prior to the release date, but after major tournaments, all games up to the final are included.
