The World Cup is a gold trophy that is awarded to the winners of the FIFA World Cup.

Jules Rimet Trophy

The Jules Rimet Trophy was the original prize for winning the World Cup. Originally called "Victory", but generally known simply as the World Cup or Coupe du Monde, it was officially renamed in 1946 to honour the FIFA President Jules Rimet who in 1929 passed a vote to initiate the competition. Designed by Abel Lafleur and made of gold plated sterling silver on a blue base of lapis lazuli, it stood 35 centimetres (14 in) high and weighed 3.8 kilograms (8.4 lb). [1] It was in the shape of an octagonal cup, supported by a winged figure representing Nike, the ancient Greek goddess of victory.

As a security measure, the English Football Association secretly manufactured a replica of the trophy for use in the post-match celebrations. The replica was also used on subsequent occasions until 1970. The replica was sold at an auction in 1997 for £254,500, when it was purchased by FIFA. The high auction price, several times the reserve price of £20,000-£30,000, led to speculation that the auctioned trophy was not a replica, and was in fact genuine.[3] The trophy has since been proven to be a replica. [citation needed] Subsequent to the auction, FIFA arranged for the replica to be displayed at the English National Football Museum in Preston.

The Brazilian team won the tournament for the third time in 1970, and were rewarded by being allowed to keep the real trophy in perpetuity. However, the cup was stolen again on 19 December 1983, when it was taken from a display at the Brazilian Football Confederation headquarters in Rio de Janeiro. The trophy was kept in a cabinet with a front of bullet-proof glass, but a rear made of wood was pried open with a crowbar.[4] The trophy was never recovered, which suggests it may have been melted down. Four men were eventually tried and convicted in absentia for the crime. The Confederation commissioned a replica of their own, made by Eastman Kodak, using 1.8 kg (3.97 lb) of gold. This replica was presented to the Brazilian president in 1984.[5] First international Argentina 3 - 0 Brazil (Buenos Aires, Argentina; September 20, 1914) Largest win Brazil 10 - 1 Bolivia (São Paulo, Brazil; 10 April 1949) Worst defeat Uruguay 6 - 0 Brazil (Viña del Mar, Chile; 18 September 1920) World Cup Appearances 18 (First in 1930) Best result Winners, 1958...

The trophy has the visible engravement "FIFA World Cup" (outpouring letters) in its base. The name of the country whose national team wins the tournament is engraved, additionally, in the bottom side of the trophy, and therefore is not visible when the trophy is standing upright. The text appears as "— 1978Argentina", for example, and is written in English. At the moment nine winners have been engraved on the base. It is not known whether FIFA will retire the trophy after all of the name plaques at the base are filled in; this will not occur until after the 2038 World Cup.

FIFA's regulations now state that the trophy, unlike its predecessor, cannot be won outright: the winners of the tournament receive it on loan for four years and receive a replica (gold plated rather than solid gold) to keep. [6]


On 14 July 2006 it was reported that The World Cup Trophy had been in Italy's hands for only a few days but it appears already to have been broken. Fabio Cannavaro, Italy's captain, was photographed holding a piece of green malachite that had broken off the base. [7] [8]
