In just 2 days it all begins in Brazil, the birthplace of Pelé, who ruled when football was more about skill and guts rather than hairstyles, Wags, or how much you were being paid.
The World Cup trophy itself is legendary. Many fans don’t know if it it is gold plated or pure 24 karat gold? Or how much does it weigh and what is its worth in gold?
The current World Cup, commissioned in 1974, stands 36.8 centimeters high, weighs 6.177 kilogrammes or 218 troy ounces and is made of solid 18 karat gold. This means that in gold terms, The World Cup is worth a measly €149,500 – £121,500 or $203,500, calculated at June 6, 2014, gold prices.
