Posted On July 8, 2021
The first ever FIFA World Cup trophy was handed out at the opening ceremony of the 2023 World Cup at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The trophy is one of the most prized and prestigious trophies in the sport, and was awarded by the committee of Fifa’s executive committee.
The event was also attended by the president of the world’s football governing body, Sepp Blatter, as well as former World Cup winner David Beckham and former FIFA president Sepp Staley.
Fifa President Sepp Thorsen handed the trophy to the winners of the 2017 and 2018 World Cup, with the former Germany international Marcelo Bielsa as the honorary winner.
Fifa World Cup 2019, which takes place on November 6 and 7 in Qatar, will be held in the city of Maraculi, in southern Brazil.
It is a first in the modern era, as it is the first time that there has been no World Cup finals held in South America.
This is also the first World Cup that is hosted in South Africa.
