France Football have announced that the Ballon d'Or award will not be handed out in 2020. The decision comes due to the complications caused by the Covid-19 outbreak, which put halted or cancelled the major soccer tournaments.

"For the first time since 1956, the Ballon d’Or will take a break. There will be no edition in 2020, because it turns out, after thoughtful consideration, that all the conditions are not met. We believe that such a singular year cannot -and should not- be treated as an ordinary one." stated France Football in a blog post.
