Don Balón was a Spanish weekly sports magazine specialising in Spanish and international football. It was distributed on five continents.
The magazine was founded in 1975 by José María Casanovas, a very well known Spanish sport journalist, who had the idea of creating an internationally recognized sport magazine. In the same year he also founded the daily sport newspaper Sport, which focuses on FC Barcelona.
The magazine disappeared on September 2011 due to the economic crisis and a scandal which brought on the arrest of its lead editor Rogelio Rengel.
The magazine also produced an annual list of 100 young players, who they felt had huge potential, from across the world. When the magazine ceased publishing, In Bed With Maradona, an online football journal, continued this list
