The FIFA "Ballon d'Or" award, literally translated as "the golden ball" award and often referred to as the European Footballer of the Year award. It was presented to the player who has been voted to have performed the best over the previous calendar year. It is awarded based on votes by coaches and captains of international teams, as well as journalists from around the world
The Ballon d'Or and the FIFA World Player of the Year award were merged in 2010 and the world's best player has since been awarded the FIFA Ballon d'Or each year. UEFA created the UEFA Best Player in Europe Award in 2011, so it could keep the prestige of the old Ballon d'or after it was merged to create the FIFA Ballon d'Or. More here
