FIFA世界杯（FIFA World Cup），简称“世界杯”，是世界各国国家队参加的足球赛事，象征着足球界的最高荣誉，具有最大的知名度和影响力。世界杯在全球有超过35亿的电视观众。世界杯每四年举行一次，任何国际足联成员国都可以派出一支球队报名参加该赛事。
The FIFA World Cup (FIFA World Cup), referred to as the “World Cup”, is a football event in which national teams from all over the world participate, symbolizing the highest honor in football, and has the greatest popularity and influence. The World Cup has more than 3.5 billion televised viewers worldwide. The World Cup is held every four years, and any FIFA member state can send a team to register for the event.
The Hercules Cup, as the trophy of the Football World Cup, is a symbol of the highest honor in football. After the 1970 World Cup in Mexico, after the three-time World Cup winner Brazil had permanent ownership of the “Remet Gold Cup”, FIFA solicited proposals for a new World Cup winner’s Gold Cup, receiving a total of 53 proposals from seven countries, and finally the work of Italian sculptor Silvio Gazzaniga was selected.
The whole trophy looks like two Hercules holding up the earth and is called the “Hercules Gold Cup”. Lines leap out of the base, spiral upwards, and reach the top to carry an earth, carving out the image of two athletes who are excited after victory on this dynamic, compact cup. It is 36.8 cm high and weighs 6.175 kg, including 4.97 kg cast in 18K yellow gold with two rings of dark green malachite at the base. The picture shows the production team holding the Hercules Cup that is about to be completed together, and it is also an honor to be part of the World Cup trophy production team.
In 1928, FIFA made a special prize for the winner, which was cast by the famous Parisian jewelry technician Freel. The model is the Greek goddess of victory, Nikai, dressed in an ancient Roman tunic, with her arms outstretched and a large cup in her hand. The statue is cast from pure gold, weighs 1800 grams and is 30 centimeters high, standing on a marble base. This cup is a mobile prize, and whoever wins the championship can keep the gold cup for 4 years and return it to FIFA before the next cup so that it can be issued to the new world champion. There is also an additional rule that whoever wins the world championship three times will always get this cup.
世界杯赛从1930年至今有过两座奖杯，“雷米特杯”和“大力神杯”。从1930年第一届到1970年第9届，使用的奖杯都是雷从1930年到现在，世界杯有两个奖杯，“Remet杯”和“大力神杯”。从1930年的第一届到1970年的第9届，使用的奖杯都是Remet杯，在1930年第一届世界杯之前，法国雕塑家Abel Lafleur设计了Remet Cup的形状，一个由八角形大理石底座支撑的奖杯。
The World Cup has had two trophies from 1930 to the present, the “Remet Cup” and the “Hercules Cup”. From the first edition in 1930 to the 9th in 1970, the trophies used were all Remet Cups, and before the first World Cup in 1930, French sculptor Abel Lafleur designed the shape of the Remet Cup, a trophy held up by an octagonal marble base.
The main body is the image of Nikai, the Greek goddess of victory, wearing a long dress, spreading her characteristic wings, and holding up a large cup with both hands, symbolizing victory and honor. Made of sterling silver, the trophy is 35 centimeters tall and weighs about 3.8 kilograms, with a gold medal on each of the four sides of the base inscribed with the name of the champion team.
The Remet Cup was originally called the World Cup, and in 1950, in recognition of FIFA President Remet who founded the competition, the trophy was named the “Remet Cup”. According to the regulations, the first team to win the World Cup three times will be able to keep the Remet Cup permanently, and in 1970, Brazil did so.
In order to avoid the trophy being “swallowed” by a country again, FIFA stipulates that the “Hercules Cup” will not be owned by any country, no matter how many times the national team wins the World Cup. However, the national team that won the World Cup can get a replica of the Hercules Cup, and the original will also belong to FIFA. Of course, the Hercules Cup is not “in service” for an indefinite period, and on its trophy base, a total of 17 World Cup winners from 1974 to 2038 can be engraved, and if nothing else, after the 2038 World Cup, it will be replaced by a new trophy.
Although each championship team can only be saved for four years, it is a lifelong pursuit of footballers.
The 2022 Qatar World Cup is in full swing, and at the same time, the final trophy “Hercules Cup” is also in intensive production, this set of pictures takes you to see the trophy production process up close, but this Hercules Cup is a replica, the final winner will receive the trophy.
From a small workshop in 1900 to now the fourth generation, this factory is called Bertony, in addition to the Hercules Cup and other trophies also come from here, such as the European Cup, Europa League, Super Cup and other trophies. The Hercules Cup, the second trophy in the World Cup, was designed by Milan-based sculptor Silvio Gazzaniga. And the process of manufacturing this Heres cup is complicated and cumbersome.
The Hercules Cup is the trophy of the football World Cup, and in 1970 FIFA solicited a new World Cup winner gold cup proposal, and finally the work of Italian artist Silvio Gazzaniga was selected. The Hercules Cup is 36.8 cm tall and weighs 6.175 kg, including 4.97 kg cast in 18K gold, with a base set with two circles of dark green malachite. Actual trophies are rarely on display, and each winner receives a replica of pure copper plated in gold, and this replica, along with the gold medal, was made in a factory in a small town called Paderno Dugnano near Milan, Italy.
When the solid body of the trophy is cast, first use an electric mill to grind off the excess metal, and the bottom and upper and lower parts of the trophy are lined with green malachite, after which the craftsman needs to continue to carve the trophy with a hammer and chisel, and then polish it with a machine, and then polish it to make the trophy surface more fine, and after the treatment of the surface, chemical corrosion, gold plating, repeated three times, washed with distilled water, wiped dry, and the trophy and base are combined into one to complete a complete Hercules cup.
Finally, the glittering Hercules Cup is finally complete!
The Hercules Cup, as the trophy of the Football World Cup, is a symbol of the highest honor in football. I don’t know who will spend this year’s Hercules Cup, please continue to pay attention to the 2022 Qatar World Cup, and wish this year’s World Cup to bring joy and excitement to people all over the world.
