FIFA World Cup

Check out the difference between FIFA world best award and Ballon d'or.

 Thank you for clicking my article.

Today I want to compare and tell the difference between Ballon d'or and FIFA best player of the year award because many people do not know the difference and they think they are one, which is not true.

First Ballon d'or is a French award given to the best player in the world annually.The Ballon d'Or which means "Golden Ball" in English is an annual football award presented by French news magazine France Football that is one of the oldest and generally regarded as the most prestigious individual award for football players. It is designed in a ball shape and made of gold, that's why it is called golden ball.

 FIFA world best player of the year is presented by FIFA is given to the voted best player in the world.

  The winner of the Ballon d'Or is voted for exclusively by a panel of journalists from across the world . The FIFA world Best , on the other hand, is decided by what FIFA describes as an "international jury" comprising the coaches and captains of national teams, journalists and fans.

While the Ballon d'Or takes into account a

player's performances over the course of the calendar year, The Best assesses players over the course of a season, so from summer to summer. As such, they are awarded at different times of the year. 

Am sure you can now differentiate between the two award next time you come across it.
