This is stated on the official website of the publication. A list of ten nominees will be announced on October 21.

It is noted that this award will be awarded simultaneously with the Golden Balls for men and women, as well as Kop Trophy - the best player under 21 years of age.

The 2019 award ceremony will be held on December 2.

During his career, Yashin, the only goalkeeper ever awarded with the Golden Ball, became the Olympic champion and won the European Championship in the USSR national team. His best result at the World Cup was fourth in the 1966 tournament, which took place in England.

Earlier, Iker Casillas expressed the opinion that it is worth establishing a Golden Ball for each role.
