At 47cm high, ten centimetres taller than the men's trophy, the FIFA Women’s World Cup™ trophy was designed by William Sawaya from Milanese company Sawaya & Moroni. Originally hand-made for the 1999 tournament, it takes the form of a spiral band which encloses a football at the top. It has a maximum width of 13cm and weighs in at 4.6kg.
Unlike the FIFA World Cup™ trophy, of which there is only one original and always stays in the possession of FIFA, the Women's World Cup trophy is produced for every FIFA Women’s World Cup tournament, which the winners get to keep.
