Luka Modrić(1st award)ARG}} Lionel Messi{{flagicon|POR}} Cristiano Ronaldo(5 awards each)POR}} Cristiano Ronaldo{{flagicon|ARG}} Lionel Messi(11 times each)weblink|}}| related = FIFA Ballon d'Or2018 Ballon d'Or>2018| main = Ballon d'Or2019 Ballon d'Or>2019}}The Ballon d'Or ({{IPA-fr|balɔ̃ dɔʁ}}; "Golden Ball") is an annual football 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 the FIFA World Player of the Year, and known as the FIFA Ballon d'Or. However, the partnership ended in 2016 and the award reverted to the Ballon d'Or, while FIFA also reverted to its own separate annual award (now named The Best FIFA Men's Player).Conceived by sports writer Gabriel Hanot, the Ballon d'Or award honours the male player deemed to have performed the best over the previous year, based on voting by football journalists. From 1956 to 2006, the award was decided by football journalists.JOURNAL, Straeten, Karine van der, Laslier, Jean-François, Daoust, Jean-François, Blais, André, Arrondel, Luc, Anderson, Christopher J., 2019, Messi, Ronaldo, and the Politics of Celebrity Elections: Voting for the Best Soccer Player in the World,weblink Perspectives on Politics, 1–20, 10.1017/S1537592719002391, 1537-5927, After 2007, coaches and captains of national teams were also given the right to vote. Originally it was an award for players from Europe. In 1995 the Ballon d'Or was expanded to include all players from any origin that have been active at European clubs. The award became a global prize in 2007 with all professional footballers from around the world being eligible.


Stanley Matthews of Blackpool was the inaugural winner of the Ballon d'Or. Prior to 1995, the award was often known in English language media as the European Footballer of the Year award. Milan's George Weah, the only African recipient, became the first non-European to win the award in the year that rules of eligibility were changed. Ronaldo of Internazionale became the first South American winner two years later. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have won the award a record five times each. Three players have won the award three times each: Johan Cruyff of Ajax and Barcelona, Michel Platini of Juventus and Marco van Basten of Milan. With seven awards each, Dutch, German and Portuguese players won the most Ballons d'Or. Only Germany (1972) and the Netherlands (1988) took all three top spots in one year. Two Spanish clubs Barcelona and Real Madrid share the top for employing the most winners, with eleven wins each.Between 2010 and 2015 inclusive, the award was merged with a similar one, the FIFA World Player of the Year award, to create the FIFA Ballon d'Or, which was awarded to the world's best male player before FIFA and France Football broke the merging agreement. After 2011, UEFA created the UEFA Best Player in Europe Award to maintain the format of the original Ballon d'Or.Eight players (Bobby Charlton, Franz Beckenbauer, Gerd Müller, Paolo Rossi, Zinedine Zidane, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho and Kaká) have won the FIFA World Cup, the European Cup/UEFA Champions League and the Ballon d'Or during their careers.NEWS, Kaka: Former Brazil, AC Milan and Real Madrid midfielder announces retirement,weblink BBC, 17 December 2017, 23 March 2018, The award shows a bias in favor of attacking players. Over time, the award has gone to a more exclusive set of leagues and clubs. Prior to 1995, 10 leagues supplied Ballon d'Or winners whereas only England, Germany, Italy, and Spain have supplied winners since 1995. Spain’s La Liga has the most Ballon d'Or winners. Barcelona and Real Madrid have supplied the most Ballon d'Or winners since 1995.
