FIFA 2018 commenced with all the tantrums and concluded with the victory of the team of France. As we all know that this year's trophy is going home with the French players but there is something else which don’t know.
Yes, we are talking about the actual worth of the FIFA 2018 trophy and its mesmerizing Louis Vuitton case which is worth more than your car. Here is everything you need to know about this state-of-the-art memento:
After the closing ceremony and a nail-biting match battle between France and Croatia, it was decided that French team will keep the trophy for the coming 4 years (Until next FIFA i.e., 2022). But before the finale, this beautiful trophy was kept in a customized Louis Vuitton case.
The trophy which is worth $15 Million was kept in a million dollar Louis Vuitton case. We don't know whether this is a coincidence or not; the French brand, Louis Vuitton, was tasked with creating a special carrying case for the trophy and after the finale it went to France.
As far as the LV case is concerned, it has a laser-engraved Monogram Titanium composition, and is lightweight but hard bearing. Its eight corners are protected with the brand’s signature natural cowhide leather, and the lock and its six clasps are composed of ruthenium, a strong dark-grey metal.
For all those who do not know: the trophy is made with 18-carat gold and weighs approximately 6 Kgs. This brilliant trophy has the names of all the previous FIFA winners engraved in its base.
This is not the first time when a customized case was designed for protecting the trophy. Reportedly, this is the third time a custom trunk carried the World Cup Trophy.
