When is the Ballon d’Or 2023? Odds, nominees, time & date as Lionel Messi eyes 8th win

Can the maestro add another title to his collection?


We’re fast approaching the business end of the season which means one thing – football fans on Twitter hiding behind profile pictures of their favourite players will soon start arguing about who deserves to win the Ballon d’Or.

Sure, the debate is tedious, but the Ballon d’Or is one of the most prestigious prizes in the game and a whole host of superstars – Cristiano Ronaldo aside – are battling it out to get their hands on France Football’s rather lovely trophy.

Real Madrid hotshot Karim Benzema took home the Ballon d’Or for the first time in his illustrious career after a bloomin’ brilliant 2021/22 campaign, but the Frenchman faces a battle to retain the crown after missing the World Cup through injury.
