Designers & Makers of The FIFA eWorld Cup Trophy

Thomas Lyte was honoured to be chosen as the designers and makers of the first FIFA eWorld Cup. The FIFA eWorld Cup is a tournament held by FIFA and its presenting partner EA Sports, players from across the globe compete in head to head matches of the latest incarnation of the hugely popular FIFA Video game franchise, in search of the best FIFA console player in the world.

The open qualifying format saw over 20 million participants compete in the initial online stages, a record for an online eSports game recognised by the Guinness World Records. The Grand Final which was held in London at the O2 Arena over a 3 day period in August 2018 amassed a stunning 29 million digital viewers that saw Mosaad "Msdossary" Aldossary of Saudi Arabia triumph over 32 finalists to lift the new trophy and be crowned Global Champion.

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.

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, adorned by a stylised golden crown.

Jean-Francois Pathy, FIFA’s director of marketing services, said: "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.
