Ballon d'Or 2019 Award Ceremony Date and Time, Live Streaming: The Ballon d'Or ceremony will be organised by France Football, where the best men's player and women's player will be adjudged after voting by journalists from around the world.

After Luka Modric ended the decade-long duopoly of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo last year by winning the Champions League final and taking Croatia to the World Cup final, it's time for someone else to win as he isn't nominated this time.

Although Ada Hegerberg won it in 2018, she isn't likely to retain it after missing the World Cup, in which Megan Rapinoe guided USA to victory. In the second-ever women's Ballon d'Or, the voting has been done by a panel of 48 journalists.

The Premier League leads the way having 15 out of 30 shortlisted players in the glittering list where Lionel Messi is the favourite to win it. Virgil van Dijk has a strong claim to it too having already won the UEFA Men's Player of the Year.
