When does the 2019 Ballon d'Or ceremony take place?

Virgil van Dijk and Lionel Messi are among the favourites to succeed Luka Modric as the game's outstanding individual figure

Luka Modric made history when he was awarded the Ballon d'Or in 2018, ending the dominance of perennial favourites Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

That trend could continue in 2019, too, with Virgil van Dijk emerging as a strong contender for the prize following his impressive Champions League-winning year with Liverpool.

So will the Messi-Ronaldo duality be broken once again?  Goal has all the details about when the Ballon d'Or will be awarded in 2019.
