The FIFA 100 is a list of 125 footballers chosen by Brazilian football legend Pelé. He made his choices based on who he thought were the best living footballers in the world. It was presented on 4 March 2004 at a ceremony in London.
The number 100 represents the 100th anniversary of FIFA and not the number of players selected. The list has 123 male players and 2 female players. At the time the list was selected, 50 players were active and 75 were retired.
