New date scheduled for Ballon D’ Or Award



New date scheduled for Ballon D’ Or Award

The administrators of the Ballon d’Or, France Football, have confirmed that this year’s event will take place in October 2022.

Instead of a calendar year, the 2021 Ballon d’Or will be awarded to the best player throughout a normal European season.

The Women’s Euros in 2022 will conclude the 2021-22 campaign, while the 2022 World Cup will be included in the 2022-23 awards.

France Football had previously declared that the Ballon d’Or would be changed.

The Ballon d’Or will henceforth consider players’ performances over the course of a season (August-July), rather than a calendar year (January-December).

This means the next edition will be for the season 2021/22, not 2022.
