[Picture of FIFA world cup]The FIFA World Cup was designed by [Picture of world cup with silvio the designer]Silvio Gazzaniga and produced by Bertoni of Milan, Italy — it depicts two human figures holding up the world, weighs 6.175 kg in total, is 365mm tall and is made of 5 kg of 18 carat solid gold with a 130mm diameter base containing two layers of malachite and the English words “FIFA WORLD CUP”

The winning team/ country is engraved on the base underside in English. 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.

Jules Rimet Coupe du Monde won by Brazil outright (first to reach 3 wins).
