The Ballon d’Or Awards consist of seven awards. The finalists for the four major awards are listed below. There are also the Best Striker (most goals for club and country), Best Club (based on most Ballon d’Or nominations in the past year), and the Socrates Award for solidarity with a player.

As the awards are based on performance in the 2021/22 season, Barcelona and Spain star midfielder Gavi look a good bet to lift the Copa trophy. The Men’s Goalkeeper of the Year award (Yesin Trophy) should go to another Real Madrid player after Thibaut Courtois helped his side win both the Champions League and La Liga with impressive performances.
