Every year, the EHF Excellence Awards honour the best players – both male and female – in each playing position: goalkeeper, left wing, left back, centre back, right back, right wing, and line player, plus best defender. Those eight players form the respective 'Team of the Season'.

Out of the seven playing positions and the best defender, a season MVP is selected for both genders. Furthermore, the respective season's two best beach handball players – one man, one woman – of the past season as well as the best male and the best female rookies are awarded.

To select the 'Team of the Season', an online vote is conducted involving players, coaches, media and fans. The fans’ vote for the 2023/24 edition took place in June on the Home of Handball app. The teams of the season can now be revealed ahead of the draw for the group phase in both the Machineseeker EHF Champions League and the EHF Champions League Women 2024/25 on Thursday 27 June. The awards gala will take place on 14 December 2024, at the final weekend of the Women's EHF EURO 2024.
