The Henri Delaunay Trophy Cup


The Henri Delaunay Trophy Cup is given every four years to the best national teams from all over Europe. The Euro, as most people call it, was first played out by four teams during the summer of 1960 and it was won by USSR team. The tournament now features 16 squads during a three-week showcase event for UEFA member countries.

Henri Delaunay, the head of the French Football Federation, first proposed the idea of a continental championship in 1927. But it took more than 30 years, before European championships in a football started.

The cup was manufactured by the Chobillon goldsmith and purchased by the French jewelers Arthus-Bertrand, the trophy ended up with a simple, elegant style – apart from the figure of a player juggling a ball on the back. The wide barrel gave way to a slender neck and expansive, crown-like opening befitting soccer’s kings of Europe. With small, braided handles, it has a sleeker and more proportional appearance than its cousin for the continent’s top club team, the European Club Champions’ Cup.

Updating the cup.

For the 2008 competition in Switzerland and Austria, UEFA decided to have the Henri Delaunay Cup updated to reflect the tournament’s growing stature. Now contested by more than three times as many nations (53 as opposed to the original 17) with a four-fold increase in teams at the championship tournament (16 instead of 4), the federation commissioned Asprey of London to bring the trophy up to snuff. Though much of the original design was retained, the newer iteration is seven inches taller and five pounds heavier than the previous incarnation. In order to accommodate the larger size, the sterling silver base was widened and the engraving of winners moved to the back of the trophy, where the juggling soccer player once was.

All Winners of the cup:

Germany (as West Germany in 1972 and 1980; unified in 1996)
Spain (1964, 2008)
France (1984, 2000)
Greece (2004)
Denmark (1992)
Netherlands (1988)
Czech Republic (as Czechoslovakia in 1976)
Italy (1968)
Soviet Union (1960)
