تاريخ جوائز بطولة العالم لكرة القدم

Graphic News

June 14-July 15, 2018 -- The FIFA World Cup trophy that the winning team will hoist aloft on July 15, was introduced in 1974, after Brazil won the previous trophy outright following their third World Cup triumph. The current trophy weighs 6.1kg and stands 36 centimetres high. Designed and made by Italian sculptor Silvio Gazzaniga, it is made of 18-carat gold with two layers of malachite, and shows two athletes holding up the earth “at the stirring moment of victory”.

The FIFA World Cup Trophy can no longer be won outright, it remains in FIFA’s permanent possession. The winners receive a gold-plated replica, known as the FIFA World Cup Winners’ Trophy.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
