World football’s two most prestigious player of the year awards will merge into a single title called the FIFA Ballon d’Or from next year.

Europe’s existing Ballon d’Or (UEFA) and FIFA’s World Player of the Year award will cease to exist as individual entities and the new award will be given for the first time in January.

“From January of next year we will have one single trophy for the best player in the world,” FIFA president Sepp Blatter said on Monday.
