The award ceremony for the Ballon d’Or France football edition 2022 will take place on October 17, 2022. The lists of candidates, for their part, will be unveiled on August 12.
The successors of Lionel Messi and Alexia Putellas will be known on October 17, 2022, the day of the official ceremony to award the Ballon d’Or France football for the 2022 edition. The winners will receive their reward at the Théâtre du Châtelet, in Paris.
The 66and edition of this prestigious prize rewarding the best footballer of the year will be presented in a renovated version. From now on, it is the performances of the season rather than those of the calendar year which will be evaluated in the designation of the best footballer. The lists will be made up with more expertise, a tighter jury and clearer rules.
As for the lists of nominees for the male and female Ballons d’Or, as well as for the Kopa Trophy for the best young player and the Yachine Trophy for the best goalkeeper, they will be communicated on August 12.
In 2021, it was Barça midfielder Pedri who won the Kopa Trophy for the best young person. For the Yachine Trophy for best goalkeeper, it was PSG and Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma who won it ahead of Manuel Neur from Bayern Munich and the German team and Senegalese goalkeeper Edouard Mendy from Chelsea.
