France Football has announced this year's Ballon d'Or 30 man shortlist and it compiles the best footballers of 2021. The Ballon d'Or has been one of the most sought after means to adjudge the best footballer in the world. Started in 1956, the award was determined via a voting method. Voting was done solely by football journalists until 2006. Since 2007, the coaches and captains of national teams were given the right to vote as well.
