The most prestigious individual awards in football will be decided tonight as the 2019 Ballon d'Or is decided.

Here is everything you need to know about the night as the biggest sport in the world celebrates the finest talent it has to offer.

Where is the Ballon d'Or being held?

The awards are being held at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris. It is presented every year by France Football and so is always in their country.

What time and channel is it on?

The ceremony kicks off from 7:30pm GMT.

No UK broadcaster has agreed a deal for the rights to air the show and so watching it on TV will be difficult for British viewers.

In the US, beIN Sports are showing the awards in full, so good news for Americans who are hoping to catch a glimpse of their Women's World Cup-winning stars.

Alternatively, France Football is expected to be showing a live stream on their official website.

Who is nominated?

A list of 20 women's players was released in October for the Women's Player of the Year nominees.

Who are the favourites?

The leading contenders to scoop the award are US stars Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan, as well as England's Lucy Bronze.

The defending champion Ada Hegerberg will also be hotly tipped for her performances for Champions League winners Lyon.

Which Lionesses are on the shortlist?

Along with Lyon full-back Bronze, England striker Ellen White has also made the list for her superb domestic season with Birmingham and six goals for the Lionesses at the World Cup.
