FIFA announces the time of the annual ceremony!12 awards to be awarded: Messi will be difficult to win, Manchester City may become a big winner

On the evening of December 8, Beijing time, FIFA officially announced that the 2023 FIFA annual awards ceremony will be held in London on January 15 next year, which is the third time that London has hosted the FIFA annual awards ceremony after 2016 and 2017.

At the ceremony, the World Footballer of the Year (FIFA Men's Player of the Year), Miss World Football (FIFA Women's Player of the Year), FIFA Best Men's and Women's Coaches, FIFA Men's and Women's Goalkeeper of the Year, Special Contribution Award, Puskas Award, Fair Play Award, Best Fan Award and other awards will be awarded. In addition, the men's and women's football team of the year will also be announced at the awards ceremony.

Previously, FIFA had announced the shortlist for the major awards. In the much-watched selection of the World Footballer of the Year, Messi, Mbappe, and Haaland, the three favorites to win the award, were successfully shortlisted for the final 12-person shortlist. In February last year, Messi won the World Footballer of the Year award for the seventh time with his World Cup title. But this year, Messi's accolades clearly can't compete with Haaland. The Norwegian genius has helped Manchester City win the Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup "treble" in the past year, and also won the Premier League, Champions League and European Golden Boot. Haaland's probability of winning the award is undoubtedly greater than Messi's.

Among the other awards, Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola is undoubtedly the favourite in the men's coach of the year competition. As for the men's goalkeeper of the year, Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson is also very likely to be elected.
