Ballon d'Or 2000

The 2000 Ballon d'Or, given to the best football player in Europe as judged by a panel of sports journalists from UEFA member countries, was awarded to Luís Figo on 19 December 2000.[1]

Figo was the second Portuguese national to win the award after Eusébio (1965). He was also the third Real Madrid player to win the trophy after Alfredo di Stéfano (1957, 1959) and Raymond Kopa (1958).[2] Figo's win was due to his performance the preceding season, which he spent as a FC Barcelona player.
