The honour recognises a player for their contributions on and off the pitch.
UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has said: "Didier Drogba was one of the best forwards of all-time - we all enjoyed him scoring - although we have Bayern fans here. But it's not enough to be a super good player - it's important to do something more, and he never forgot where he comes from.
"He helped children in the Ivory Coast to build schools and develop them - he's just a great man, and that's why he deserves this trophy."
We're set for a new-look UCL live draw as, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the usual array of hosts and presenters are unable to attend.
