The award ceremony will honor the best players in the world in 2021 and will take place in Zurich on January 17.
Although the Ballon d'Or ceremony will not take place in 2020, FIFA's Best Awards have been put on display due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These categories included the best players, goalkeepers, and coaches in men's and women's soccer.
The 2020 edition of the event saw Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski beat Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to the award. Ronaldo missed the award for the best male star, and Mohamed Salah will compete with Messi and Lewandowski for the prize.
Where Can I Watch FIFA Best Event 2021?
Fifa will broadcast the video of the award ceremony live to all football fans around the world, and will broadcast it directly on its social media platforms such as YouTube and Facebook.
Messi, Lewandowski, and Salah are set to compete for the 2021 FIFA Best Player award.
Lionel Messi won his 7th Ballon d'Or this year after playing an important role in Argentina's historic Copa America victory.
The former Barcelona player is by no means the only hopeful bet, however, with Robert Lewandowski's lifestyle. The Polish striker has broken extraordinary records with Bayern Munich, and Messi may win this award.
Mohamed Salah is also included in the top three, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Erling Haaland, and Karim Benzema missing this year. The ceremony also has something to do with managers, with Tuchel, Guardiola, and Mancini competing to win the FIFA Men's Coach of the Year award.
Barcelona Femeni have dominated women's football in 2021, and it's no surprise that Alexia Putellas and Jenni Hermoso are candidates for the best women's player award. Catalans manager Lluis Cortes is at the forefront of women's coaching.
