International: Watch Ballon d'Or live on TV and livestream today

This Monday evening, the Ballon d’Or awards ceremony will take place in Paris. Find out what you need to know about this award and where you can follow the ceremony here at SPOX.

The Ballon d’Or is organised by France Football magazine. The editorial staff of the magazine compiles a shortlist of 30 candidates.

The Golden Ball awards ceremony will take place today, Monday, at 9 p.m. at the Grand Palais in Paris. The event will be broadcast by Sky Sport News HD. Although this channel belongs to the pay-TV channel Sky, it can also be watched on free TV. The livestream is also free of charge.

An international jury of specialist journalists with one representative per country may vote. A total of 173 journalists select one of the 30 players on the shortlist according to the following criteria:

Each jury member nominates five players. The favorite gets six points. The remaining four kickers get four, three, two and one point.

If there is a tie, the number of entries decides first, then second and so on. In the event that the players are still level, there will be an extra voting round.

This year, for the first time, the Ballon d’Or feminin will be awarded to the best player in the world. The Kopa trophy, named after real legend Raymond Kopa, for the best kicker under the age of 21 is also available for the first time.

After the disappointing World Cup, no German professional is represented among the top 30 players. In addition, no candidate plays in the Bundesliga.
