Many local, regional and international sporting activities and activities have witnessed either postponement or cancellation due to the Coruna virus, such as the Olympic Games in Tokyo, European Championships and even tennis, Coimbadon and the American Open, so what happens to the Golden Ball?
Since the start of the outbreak of the new Corona Virus around the world, many local, regional and international sporting activities and activities have witnessed either postponement or cancellation, such as the Olympic Games in Tokyo, European Championships and even tennis, Coimbadon and the Open America.
The Golden Ball award, distributed by France Football magazine, is perhaps one of the long list of events and sporting activities that will appear to be affected by the outbreak of the new Coruna virus. According to the Spanish “Marca” sports website.
According to the procedures, the award is voted by 193 sports journalists from all over the world, usually every November.
However, there is an opportunity not to play many football matches from now on, due to cancellation or postponement until further notice, and with matches being held in January and February only, how will these journalists decide who will win the Golden Ball award for this year?
In addition to the lack of local leagues and the Champions League and European Championships being suspended, there will be no European Cup or Copa America this summer as well.
It is noteworthy that the Golden Ball Award is awarded to the best player in the world every year, since it was first won by Stanley Matthews in 1966, while the Argentine player and Barcelona star Lionel Messi, who won it 6 times, won it 5 times, compared to 5 times for the Portuguese and one star. Juventus is the current Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Golden Ball Award is in the same rank as the “best” awards given by the International Football Association “FIFA” to the best male and female players, which are usually delivered in September.
The European Golden Shoe Award is less valuable than its predecessors, and the Italian player and Lazio Ciro Imobili’s attack star, who scored the most goals in the major European leagues this season, will receive it.
