World Cup: The Trophy and the History behind it

In a World Cup for Football the fight is for the Trophy that becomes the symbol of Victory declaring the winners as the best in Football among the whole World. So this Trophy that is given for acknowledging the Winners is so special and is depicted as the rarest of rare things on the Earth.

There have been two Trophies awarded to the winners since the advent of the World Cup in 1930. The Trophy was called the World Cup or Coupe du Monde; it was renamed in 1946 to honor the FIFA President Jules Rimet who in 1929 passed a vote to initiate the competition.

The Trophy was designed by Abel Lafleur. It is made of Gold plated Sterling Silver on a blue base of Lapis Lazuli, its height is 35cm and its weight is 3.8 kg. The shape of the Trophy was of an octagonal Cup, supported by a winged figure representing Nike, the ancient Greek Goddess of Victory.

The Trophy was held by Italy during the World War II, the Italian Vice-President of FIFA, Ottorino Barassi, hid the Trophy in a shoe Box under his Bed to protect it from the Germans.
The Trophy was stolen in a public exhibition at Westminster Central Hall, just before the 1966 World Cup Final in England. It was found wrapped in Newspaper at the bottom of suburban Garden hedge in Norwood, South London, by a dog named “Pickles” after seven days.

FIFA secretly made a replica of the Trophy for use in the post-Match celebrations and on subsequent occasions until 1970 as a security measure. There were many replicas on eBay at that time so the replica was sold at an auction in 1997 for 5,015.

Brazil was allowed to keep the Trophy with them eternally when the Brazilian won the Trophy for the third time in 1970. This Trophy was again stolen in 1983 in Rio de Janeiro and never was recovered. A replica of this Trophy was made by the Brazilian Football Confederation.

The FIFA World Cup Trophy was designed by Silvio Gazzaniga; its height is 36Cm and weighs about 5kg. it is made of 18 Carat solid Gold with a base containing two layers of Malachite and two Human figures holding up the Earth. This Trophy then was called as the FIFA World Cup Trophy.

This Trophy was first presented at the 1974 World Cup. Every time a Country wins the Trophy the name of the Country and the Year of winning is engraved at the bottom of the Trophy. The winner of the Tournament receives the original Trophy and has it with them till the next World Cup and then after that they receive a replica of the Trophy to keep it with them forever.
