Ballon d'Or challenged

At the end of every year it is customary to know the world's best player. As the contract with France football magazine was terminated earlier in the season, it meant that the world football organization has lost its right over the Ballon d'Or prize. But FIFA's panicking was over until today when new award was introduced.
Naming it simply 'The Best' the new prize will debut with 8 categories for 2016: for men and women best player and coach will be selected, Puskas award, fair play award, fan award and FIFPro world 11. Unlike France football where only selected journalists are choosing the winner, FIFA gave the valuable asset to be a part of the award: through online (social media) voting passionate football lovers around the world will play significant role for the winners. The voting process for the first 4 main categories (men and women) will be done throughout November, with the final three names for each will be known 02 December.
Who will take 'The Best' 8 trophies (first) for 2016 we will find out 09 January in Zurich, where even 11 lucky fans will attend the ceremony.
