Ballon d’Or 2020 cancelled following COVID-19 pandemic

Ballon d’Or 2020 cancelled following COVID-19 pandemic

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic there will be no confirmed Ballon d’Or 2020 winners this year.

Every year after Stanley Matthews won the first one in 1956, the Ballon d’Or, presented by France Football magazine, has been given out. Barcelona and Lionel Messi, the Argentine striker, have bagged a record six times as many as any player. It’s won five times by Messi ‘s most rated football rival, Cristiano Ronaldo.

A statement from France Football reads:

“The Ballon d’Or will take a break for the first time since 1956. There will be no edition in 2020, as it turns out, after careful thought, that all the criteria are not fulfilled. We agree that such a single year can not-and should not-be regarded as usual.

“From a sporting point of view, two months (January and February), of the eleven usually needed to shape an opinion and determine who will win the trophies, reflect much too little to evaluate and judge; without forgetting that the other games were played – or will be played – in extraordinary circumstances (behind closed doors, with five replacements, Champions League Final 8 played in a single game).

“Ultimately, the equity that prevails for this honorary title will not be justified, particularly when it comes to accounting and preparation: not all award seekers will be in the same boat, some of whom have had their season cut short. But how do we make a reasonable comparison? They chose the least bad choices to avoid unnecessarily complex estimates and forecasts.

“This decision, taken with all the Group stakeholders of course, does not please us but it seems to be the most responsible one. Protecting the integrity and prestige of such an award also means maintaining its flawlessness over time.

“The Ballon d’Or will reunite the large family and fans of football again in 2021, to relive the joy that accompanies the ceremonies as we have seen them in recent years.”

Next year will mark the first time there will be no handing out of the most coveted individual award in football.
