Ballon d’Or: Full list of all winners till date

The winner of this year’s Ballon d’Or will be announced on December 3, 2018 in Paris.

Recall that France Football in October announced a 30-man list players that will battle for the 2018 Ballon d’ or.

A panel of journalists, one from every country, will decide the winner, and will grade their nominees in three categories: performances during the calendar year, talent and fair play, and achievements throughout a career.

The favourite for this year’s Europe topflight individual prize remains Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modric, who won the Champions League before leading Croatia to its first World Cup final in Russia this summer, where they were defeated 4-2 by France.

Modric recently won the FIFA Men’s Best Player award and also the UEFA’s Best Player of the year award.
