The 2013 FIFA Ballon d'Or Gala was the fourth year for FIFA's awards for the top football players and coaches of the year. The awards were given out in Zürich on 13 January 2014.[1] The deadline for voting was 15 November 2013 but was extended to 29 November 2013 for the first time in history.

Real Madrid and Portugal winger Cristiano Ronaldo won the Ballon d'Or award as the World Player of the Year. It was his second Ballon d'Or, after winning the award in 2008, as well as his first FIFA Ballon d'Or. With the win, he ended Lionel Messi's domination of the award. Nadine Angerer was announced as the Women's World Player of the Year recipient, while Jupp Heynckes claimed the World Coach of the Year for Men's Football, and Silvia Neid the World Coach of the Year for Women's Football. The ninety-minute ceremony was hosted by Fernanda Lima along with Ruud Gullit.[2][3]

Voting

The deadline for voting was 15 November 2013.[4][5][6] However, for the first time ever, on 20 November 2013, FIFA announced that voting was extended to 29 November 2013 for "after receiving a response of less than 50% from eligible voters before the original deadline."[4][5] It was also announced that any vote cast before the first deadline can be changed to "take into account recent performances".[5][6] It was obvious that the decision fitted Cristiano Ronaldo who had just scored a hat-trick against Sweden for a FIFA World Cup play-off. The winners were announced on 13 January 2014.[7][8]
