FIFA Ballon d’Or Award winners list

The FIFA Ballon d’Or is an individual award organised by the football governing body FIFA to recognized the best talent of the year. The FIFA Ballon d’Or award is by far the biggest individual award a footballer should ever hope for during his career as a professional footballer.

During the first days the only players who were eligible to be part of the Ballon d’ Or were only European players, it would then be called the best player from Europe now these days it doesn’t matter from which league or country you are playing from.

Even though it includes even countries outside Europe most players who have gone on to win the award play from European countries. Spain, Germany, England, Italy and Portugal are the countries that has produced most winners. So you could say its still a European award.

How is the Ballon d’ Or winner selected?

The “diverse international jury” of voters is made up of national team coaches and captains from a selection of FIFA‘s 209 national associations, in addition to “specialist journalists.” There are some surprisingly lax stipulations laid out for the voters:

Only one journalist per country may vote. They are allowed to select players who play in or are affiliated with their own country. 

National team captains cannot vote for themselves, but can vote for national or club colleagues. (Bleacher report)

What is the vote for? What are the votes based on?

According to its Rules of Allocation, FIFA bestows the award “according to on-field performance and overall behavior on and off the pitch.”

The behavioral aspect is an important one, as the chosen player must have role model qualities—on and off the field. It is for this reason that we see players like Luis Suarez not winning the award despite being on top of his and everyone’s game.
