This summer will see some of the best female footballers in the world taking part in the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 – while thoughts are already turning to the end of the year when the Ballon d’Or Feminin will be awarded.

Alexia Putellas, the Barcelona and Spain star who won the award last year, will undoubtedly be among the firm favorites to defend her title as the world’s best player in the women’s game this year.

There are some other superstars who have already made their case for nomination who are also worth keeping an eye out for.

The contenders for the 2022 Ballon d’Or award for women’s

#5 Wendie Renard

How will the Women's Ballon d'Or be decided and who will win it?

With more than eight Women’s Champions League titles to her credit, the big center half of the team continues to break records. While on the way to winning the title again with Lyon, Renard made her 100th appearance in the competition while en route to lifting the trophy. In the summer of this year, she will once again play an important role in the French defense.
Since 2018, the women’s Ballon d’Or award, or Ballon d’Or Feminin, has been awarded for the first time.

#4 Vivianne Miedema

How will the Women's Ballon d'Or be decided and who will win it?

Whenever the awards are being given out, you can always find me there or thereabouts. The Netherlands striker Miedema had a decent season with Arsenal in the Women’s Super League, but a great summer with the Netherlands could put her in pole position for Ballon d’Or. It is likely that she would have won the award in 2017 if the award had existed at that time.

#3 Caroline Graham Hansen

How will the Women's Ballon d'Or be decided and who will win it?

Norway’s most influential player, including the returning legend Ada Hegerberg, is perhaps in the discussion for Norway’s most influential player. A key player in Barcelona’s all-conquering team, Hansen is an absolute wizard with the ball and has been an integral part of the team’s all-conquering success.

#2 Sam Kerr

How will the Women's Ballon d'Or be decided and who will win it?

There was no doubt that Chelsea had a rocky start to this season’s Women’s Super League, but after Kerr returned from the Asian Cup, she was able to lead the team to a league and cup double. During the domestic season, she scored 29 goals and assisted on eight others. There is no doubt that the Australian will not be in EUROs; however, keep an eye out for her at next year’s Women’s World Cup in Brazil.

#1 Alexia Putellas

How will the Women's Ballon d'Or be decided and who will win it?

Considering the fact that she won the award last year, and she has continued to parlay her scintillating form this year, it’s hard to ignore the Barcelona and Spain goal machine. The Barcelona Women’s Team did not win the Women’s Champions League this year, but the team did manage to achieve the domestic treble again, and Putellas is now the most capped player in Spain’s history with 98 caps.
