Euro Cup 2012 Trophy

The UEFA Euro Cup trophy is called the Henry Delaunay Trophy. It is named in the honor of Henry Delaunay of the France Football Association who came up with the idea of holding such a tournament among the teams of Europe. However, he died a few years before the inception of the UEFA Euro Cup. Pierre Delaunay, son of Henry Delaunay was the in-charge of the designing of this trophy. The trophy was the work of the Chobillon goldsmith of Paris.

The trophy was remodeled for the first time prior to the 2008 Euro cup. This task of a new trophy design was given to Asprey London, renowned jewelers having a glorifying history of trophy designing. However, it is still based on the original trophy design. It is made up of sterling silver. Now, it weighs 8 kilogram (2 kilogram heavier than the original) and is 60 centimeter tall (18 centimeter taller).

It is 2 kilogram heavier and 18 centimeter taller than the earlier trophy. 'A man with a football' design was removed from the trophy. The silver base of the trophy had been enlarged. Iker Casillas became the first the caption to hold this new trophy after his team's win in the 2008 Euro Cup. The trophy is a unique camouflage of tradition meats modernity.
