BALLONDOR1

The Ballon d'Or is an annual award presented by France Football. It has been awarded since 1956, although between 2010 and 2015, an agreement was made with FIFA and the award was temporarily merged with FIFA World Player of the Year, and known as the FIFA Ballon d'Or. Conceived by sports writer Gabriel Hanot, the Ballon d'Or honours the male player deemed to have performed best over the previous year, based on voting by football journalists. Originally, only European players were in contention for the Ballon d'Or: In 1995 the award was expanded to include all players at European clubs and in 2007 to all players from around the world.
