About this deal

The note, written by Cugullere, said: “Dear Joe Kno (sic) doubt you view with very much concern the loss of the world cup...to me it is only so much scrap gold.” Blatter mourns loss of ex-Brazil captain Bellini".

The original trophy, however, was stolen for a second time in 1983 from the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) headquarters in Rio de Janeiro. The only original piece of Abel Lafleur’s trophy in existence today is the original base, which was swapped out in 1954 for a taller one. The piece was discovered in 2015 stowed away in the basement of the FIFA headquarters in Zurich. FIFA World Cup trophy: 1974-present

FIFA World Cup trophy iterations

Mr Denis Follows, secretary of the Football Association, described the theft as “most distressing” and said it cast “quite a cloud over our preparations for the World Cup.” In recent tournaments, FIFA, in conjunction with Coca-Cola, takes the new trophy around the world before the upcoming World Cup. It gives thousands of soccer fans the chance to experience football’s most coveted prize with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the trophy themselves. The Jules Rimet Trophy was the first iteration. It was used from 1930 to 1970. Brazil won it outright courtesy of becoming the first country in the history of the competition to become three-time champions (1958, 1962 and 1970).

Sculptors from seven countries sent in 53 submissions for the new design but eventually, it was commissioned to Italian artist Silvio Gazzaniga.

Produced by Bertoni, Milano in Paderno Dugnano, it depicts two human figures holding up the Earth. Gazzaniga described the trophy thus, "The lines spring out from the base, rising in spirals, stretching out to receive the world. From the remarkable dynamic tensions of the compact body of the sculpture rise the figures of two athletes at the stirring moment of victory". [18] There were gold plates attached to each of the four sides of the base, on which the winning countries’ names were engraved after each edition. The Jules Rimet Trophy. (Getty Images)By 11 a.m. Parliament Square was coming to life. Some 250 Methodists entered the front of the building, lustily to sing in the Great Hall such lines as “Yet when Thou dost accept their gold, Lord, treasure up my mite.” They were led by an organ and a choir of 80. He suggested that the theft must have occurred during “an aversion of human eyes.” The exhibition was on two floors in a large hall and there were “at least two to four guards circulating the hall at the time.”

The inscriptions state the year in figures and the name of the winning nation in its national language. For example, "1974 Deutschland" or "1994 Brasil". In 2010, the name of the winning nation was engraved as "2010 Spain", in English, not in Spanish. [30] [31] This was corrected in the new plate made after the 2018 World Cup. [32] Ottorino Barassi, an Italian who was serving as the FIFA vice-president at the time, quietly removed the trophy from the vault of a bank in Rome and hid it in a shoebox under his bed during the entirety of the War. In 1954, the old base of the Jules Rimet Trophy was replaced with a taller one to accommodate names of more winners. Since 1974, football world champions have been presented with the new version called the FIFA World Cup trophy. The Brazilian team won the tournament for the third time in 1970, allowing them to keep the real trophy in perpetuity, as had been stipulated by Jules Rimet in 1930. [14] It was put on display at the Brazilian Football Confederation headquarters in Rio de Janeiro, in a cabinet with a front of bullet-proof glass. [15]a b Simon Kuper (2006). "Solid gold mystery awaits the final whistle". Financial Times. Archived from the original on 13 May 2007 . Retrieved 5 July 2006. The trophy has the engraving "FIFA World Cup" on its base. After the 1994 FIFA World Cup, a plate was added to the bottom side of the trophy where the names of winning countries are engraved, names therefore not visible when the trophy is standing upright. The original trophy is now permanently kept at the FIFA World Football Museum in Zurich, Switzerland. It only leaves there when it goes on its FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour. It is present at the Final draw for the next World Cup, and on the pitch at the World Cup opening game and Final. [27] The FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour was inaugurated for the 2006 FIFA World Cup competition. [28]

The task of designing a trophy for the competition was commissioned to Abel Lafleur, a French sculptor who would later go on to compete in art competitions held during the Los Angeles 1932 Olympics. Dean, Jon (18 March 2016). "How my dog found the stolen World Cup trophy – put me in the frame" . Retrieved 8 March 2018. The Cup used to be kept by the winning team until the final draw of the next tournament, however, that is no longer the case. Instead the winners of the tournament receive a bronze replica which is gold-plated rather than solid gold. Likewise, three-time winners keep the replica instead of the original cup.
