UEFA sets October date in Paris for Ballon d’Or 2024 awards night

June 7 – UEFA has announce that the Ballon d’Or 2024 awards ceremony will take place on Monday October 28 at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris.

At the end of last year UEFA and Groupe Amaury, owner of media companies France Football and L’Équipe, agreed to co-organise the renowned Ballon d’Or from 2024 onwards.

Groupe Amaury remains the owner of the Ballon d’Or brand and will continue to oversee the voting system, which will remain unchanged and independent, while UEFA will contribute its football expertise, market the global commercial rights and organise the annual awards gala.

Nominees for the award are set to be revealed on September 4, with Real Madrid’s Brazilian attacker Vinicius Junior and English midfielder Jude Bellingham tipped as frontrunners for the award.

Despite Real Madrid’s UEFA Champions League victory, the successor to Lionel Messi is still impossible to predict.

The winner could hinge on the results this summer of the Euros in Germany and the Copa America in the US, with both England and Brazil expected to reach the latter stages.

For the women’s award Aitana Bonmati has been tipped to win a second consecutive title after a stellar year at FC Barcelona saw the 26-year-old tally 23 goals and 17 assists from midfield, lifting the Supercopa de Espana, Liga F, Copa de la Reina, Champions League and Nations League in the process.
