Who and how do you vote between 30 women and 20 women candidates? To decide the male winner, a jury of 170 expert journalists (one for each country attached to FIFA) selects five male and female players and gives them a score of 6,4,3,2 and 1 point . For the women’s Ballon d’Or, 50 journalists who specialize in women’s football vote.

There are three criteria for selecting the winner: individual and collective performance, the player’s class (including fair play) and his sports career. In the event of a tie, the player who was first selected the most times prevails.

It should be remembered that there is no financial prize for the winners, only recognition from the world of football. The trophy, worth around 3,000 euros, weighs 7.2 kilograms and measures 32 centimeters high, 23 long and 23 wide.
