Predicted 2024 Ballon d'Or Winners

The Ballon d'Or Award is an annual award for the best international football player, awarded by a panel of selected journalists from the top football playing countries. In the lead up to the Ballon d'Or in 2024 there is a lot of speculation about who will win.

Men's Ballon d'Or

In 2023, Lionel Messi won a record eighth Ballon d'Or award. That was likely the end of an era, probably his last Ballon d'Or, particularly if he continues to play for Inter Miami in the MLS. The 2024 award is to be decided over the 2023/24 season as well as the 2024 international tournament.

How do the top football websites rank the contenders for the men's Ballon d'Or in 2024? We have collated the opinions of a few of the top football websites to compare.

Based on the predictions available so far, the 2023 Kopa Trophy (for the best u/21 player) winner Jude Bellingham, is an early favorite. All these predictions are purely speculative, as they have been made nearly a year out from the 2024 award ceremony.
