Ballon d’Or 2023: A Glimpse at Football’s Top Prize

The Ballon d’Or is a special award given out every year by the French magazine France Football. It’s the biggest award a football player can get.

This award has been around since 1956, and it all started with England’s Stanley Matthews.

For a long time, the award has mostly gone to either Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. They’ve won it a total of 13 times in the last 15 years. Messi got his first Ballon d’Or 14 years ago, which is pretty amazing considering he’d only been playing professionally for five years.

So, the Ballon d’Or is a really big deal in the world of football!
