As we reported earlier, France Football has decided not to present the Golden Ball award this year.
France Football explains this as an "exceptional emergency solution". The magazine believes that the current situation makes it impossible to create fair conditions for determining the best player.
The football season was stopped in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. In May, it was decided to resume football season with specific restrictions (five replacements, no spectators).
