The Ballon d’Or 2016 winner will be announced on Monday, December 12 at 8PM Nigerian time.
A gradual revelation of the vote will begin from 5:30PM leading up to the big announcement.
WHO IS ANNOUNCING Ballon D’or 2016?
This looks kinda complicated at this time. In recent years, FIFA and France Football have jointly presented the award at a fancy gala ceremony in Zurich every January.
However, France Football have now taken back the award and the winner will be announced simultaneously with L’Equipe.
Whereas before the Ballon d’Or was held in Zurich, close to FIFA HQ, France Football will return the ceremony to Paris.
WHAT ABOUT FIFA THEN?
Never to be completely overshadowed, FIFA will award the best player of 2016 and the Puskas Award for the best goal of the year, amongst other prizes, at a gala ceremony on January 9.
