Just two days after the voting closed, the winner of the Ballon d’Or is finally decided
The Ballon d’Or award is again at the most awaited stage as many football fans await to find out who is currently ranked as the World Best Player.
With both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo holding most of this award over the past years, it’s to be learned if either of them still retained the title.
Although, both men has been argued to have not met the standards following struggles this season including Messi leaving Barcelona for Paris Saint German.
A selection of international journalists, national team coaches and captains vote to decide the winner.
They will choose their top five from the 30 footballers left in the running.
The players will be ordered from first to fifth based on: individual and collective performances during the year, player class and an overall view of the player’s career.
The total points for each player from every journalist, coach and captain are then added together to decide third, second and first place.
The winner for the Ballon D’Or 2021 has now been decided on Monday, October 25, according to GFFN.
This means voting for all the 30 shortlisted nominees has been closed.
However, the winner will be unveiled at a ceremony in Paris on November 29.
GFFN tweeted today: “Ballon D’Or voting for 2021 is now closed – the winner has been decided – we find out on 29th November.”
