FIFA cancel ‘The Best’ awards 2020

The Fédération Internationale de Football Association has revealed that Best FIFA Football Awards 2020 ceremony will not take place this year due to Covid-19 pandemic.

According to Spanish daily sports newspaper MARCA, cancellation of the awards, which were to take place in Milan on September, means that The Best Men’s Player award will be left vacant. Messi will continue to be the reigning champion.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino felt that a night of celebration wasn’t appropriate during this pandemic.

Leo Messi was the winner in 2019. With there being no winner, the Argentine will be the defending champion for another year, coming above Virgil van Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo in 2019.

In fact, the Portuguese leads the ranking as he has won 2. There there is Messi, 2019 winner, and Luka Modric who won it in 2018.

Praising the decision as “logical”, the report said that since football matches across the globe have been suspended or even outright cancelled, there was little reason to bother with an awards ceremony.

The rest of the award ceremonies this season are still taking place for now. ‘France Football’ still hasn’t decided what will happen with the Ballon d’Or, the same as UEFA with the award ceremony that they have during the Champions League group stage draw.
