Ballon d’Or Power Rankings: August 2022

The Ballon d’Or is the most prestigious prize in football. The award is presented by French news magazine France Football to the best performing footballer in a calendar year. France Football released the Ballon d’Or 30-man shortlist earlier this month and there were quite a few surprises.

Record seven-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi was left off the shortlist. But there are plenty of familiar names. The Ballon d’Or winner will ultimately be chosen on the basis of a combination of votes from media representatives, national team captains and coaches.

The 2022 Ballon d’Or ceremony will take place on October 17. We’re just a month and a half away from finding out who is taking home the coveted prize this year.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at the Ballon d’Or Power Rankings for the month of August 2022.
