Who will succeed Karim Benzema?
Karim Benzema can proudly claim to be the reigning Ballon d’Or winner – for now. Because on Monday, October 30th, the gala to award the Golden Ball for the 2022/23 season will take place at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris. It starts at 8:45 p.m.
The top favorites for the triumph are Erling Haaland from Champions League winners Manchester City, named Europe’s Footballer of the Year in August, and Lionel Messi, who became world champion with Argentina. It is already rumored that “la Pulga” is even more likely to win the most prestigious individual award in football. Messi has won the Ballon d’Or seven times so far, making him the record holder ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo (five).

Ballon d’Or: The Mode
Since it was awarded in 2022, the voting criteria for the Ballon d’Or have been slightly different. A calendar year is no longer taken into account, but rather a season. Only journalists from countries in the top 100 of the FIFA rankings are now allowed to vote; previously there were 170 nations.
Second is the performance of the nominated player’s team, especially the titles they may win. In order to give greater importance to fair play, it is followed by sporting behavior – equated with talent. However, the player’s individual performance is the most important evaluation feature.
How exactly is voting for the Ballon d’Or? Each member of the jury has five votes, awarding, in descending order, six points for their best, four for their second-best, three for their third-best, two for their fourth-best and one point for their fifth-best player of the season. Logical: The star with the most points at the end is the winner. In the unlikely event of a tie, the deciding factor is who was placed in first position more often.
What other prizes will be awarded?
When FRANCE FOOTBALL rolls out the red carpet, the awarding of the Ballon d’Or is the highlight. Before that, other prizes will also be awarded: the Yachine Trophy for the best goalkeeper, the Kopa trophy for the best U21 player and the women’s Ballon d’Or for the best women’s footballer. Vinícius and Antonio Rüdiger also received the Sócrates Award, a Ballon d’Or in the social commitment category.
