Player of the Year of Argentina

The Player of the Year of Argentina is a yearly award organized by the Argentine Sports Journalists' Circle given to the best Argentine footballer, or to the best foreign footballer playing in the Argentine League. This award, known as the Olimpia de Plata al Mejor Futbolista ("Silver Olimpia to the best footballer"), is part of the Olimpia awards; the most important sports award in Argentina.

It is unclear when Argentine footballers playing outside Argentina and foreign ones playing in Argentina started being electable. Mario Kempes in 1978 was the first Argentinian to receive it while playing abroad, and Uruguayan Enzo Francescoli was the first foreign player to receive the award.
