Who made the FIFAe World Cup Trophy?

Designed by Thomas Lyte’s design team and hand crafted in Thomas Lyte’s world-renowned London Workshops from the finest silver and gold plate, the bespoke trophy stands at 50cm tall. The manufacturing process combined traditional silversmithing methods, including spinning, hand chasing, hand engraving, silver and gold plating and hand polishing. Overlaying these traditional skills our manufacturing team employed leading-edge, pioneering modern techniques.


Part of the family

The stunning new FIFA eWorld Cup is crafted with a central column featuring a distinct graphic inlay that is dramatically engraved. In contrast to the column’s satin finish, a sheet of highly polished silver plate spirals up the length of the trophy, atop of which sits a hand-engraved silver globe, a FIFA trophy family trait, which is adorned by a stylised golden crown, crafted in the image of the FIFAe World Cup logo.

“The FIFA eWorld Cup Grand Final 2018 provided an outstanding opportunity to drive forward the professionalisation of competitive FIFA gaming. The new FIFA eWorld Cup Trophy mirrors this ambition as a fantastic example of world class, elite master craftsmanship using the finest of materials.”

Jean-Francois Pathy, Director of Marketing Services for FIFA
