Everything you need to know about football's biggest award ceremony
The French magazine France Football presents the annual Ballon d'Or, which is recognised as the most important individual honour in the sport.
Over the past 15 years, Messi and his former rival Cristiano Ronaldo have won the coveted men's award 13 times apiece, dominating the pitch.
Fourteen years ago, just five years into his senior professional career, Messi took home his first Ballon d'Or. Stanley Matthews of England was the inaugural winner of the honour.
The 2023 Ballon d'Or, the most anticipated sporting event of the year, will begin on Monday, October 30, in Paris, France.
