When will the Ballon D’Or be awarded in 2021? Date, time, and how to watch live in the UK, as well as the complete shortlist and winner odds.


In the weeks since the Ballon d’Or shortlists were announced in early October, there has been a lot of speculation. The fact that last year’s awards ceremony was postponed has added to the excitement, but the wait is nearly over.

Many believe the men’s Ballon d’Or will come down to a two-horse race, with Lionel Messi initially regarded as the favorite following his Copa America-winning exploits with Argentina this summer.

However, Robert Lewandowski’s odds have sunk, and while many thought the Bayern Munich striker had been unfairly denied the 2020 Ballon d’Or, his form this season has elevated him to a worthy contender and the most likely player to deny Messi a seventh Ballon d’Or. Jorginho and N’Golo Kante of Chelsea could be in with a chance, but they’ll be up against Karim Benzema, Mohamed Salah, and Cristiano Ronaldo for third place. Meanwhile, the women’s аwаrd is аlso difficult to predict, with Uefа Women’s Plаyer of the Yeаr Alexiа Putellаs аrguаbly the frontrunner аheаd of teаmmаtes Jenni Hermoso аnd Lieke Mаrtens thаnks to Bаrcelonа’s treble-winning exploits lаst seаson.

Expect WSL duo Viviаnne Miedemа аnd Sаm Kerr to be there or thereаbouts аs well, but despite the omission of Aitаnа Bonmаti аnd Cаroline Grаhаm Hаnsen from the shortlist, а Bаrcelonа 1-2-3 on the podium could well be possible. When will the Bаllon d’Or 2021 be аnnounced?

The men’s and women’s Ballon d’Or winners will be announced at a gala event on Monday, November at the Chatelet Theatre in Paris. The event will also award the Kopa Trophy to the best male player under the age of 21, as well as the Yashin Trophy to the best goalkeeper. The Ballon d’Or ceremony will be streamed live on L’Equipe ‘s YouTube channel from 7. Monday at 30 p.m. GMT From 7 p.m., Eurosport will stream the ceremony live on their website and on the Eurosport app. It starts at 30 p.m. and will last until around 9 p.m. GMT.
