He knows the innermost secrets of sports. No, he won’t tell.

In fact, of course, there is a clear majority behind many of the names. “As far as men are concerned, maybe 20 or 22 players will be obvious to everyone,” he said. “We are discussing the last eight or ten people. The meetings can be long, two or three hours, but we need everyone to be proud of the final choice. This is not just a list of bosses. And we try not to forget anyone: a couple of years ago we found out that together with us we watched 1000 games or more in a year. Getting on the list is very serious. “

As soon as something comes close to a consensus, France Football submits its shortlists to a jury of over 170 voted journalists from all over the world (as well as announcing them publicly) in early October.

This is where the veil of secrecy falls. The jury – one from each country – submits its five submissions in order to what Ferré describes as a “private mail server.” Pressing on what form it takes, he objected: the system is so secret that he refused to disclose even how it works, except that only he and his secretary have access to it. The rest of France Football employees remain in the dark.

“We’re very careful,” he said. “But the identity of the Ballon d’Or winner is a big secret. I think the rest of the sport has no analogues. ” Vague doubts sounded in his voice when it was suggested that the nearest parallel might be the Oscar results.

That the responsibility is so heavy on Ferret and his magazine should not be attributed to an exaggerated sense of self-worth. They take Ballon d’Or seriously because they know exactly how much it means to the players. When Ferre called Luka Modric, the 2018 winner, to inform him of his victory, the Croat “cried like a child,” Ferre said.

“It’s Christmas for them,” he said. “This is the only chance in team sports to celebrate a victory alone.”

This value seems to only grow every year. The primacy of the Golden Ball is an interesting phenomenon. In 2010, he was married to the official FIFA equivalent, the World Player of the Year award, and became the FIFA Ballon d’Or.
