Every FIFA World Cup tournament from 1970 onwards has seen a participating team win the FIFA Fair Play award. Read on to know more on the FIFA Fair Play Trophy.

FIFA Fair Play Award

Playing in the FIFA World Cup tournament would be an honor and a hard earned privilege for any and every national side. However, there’s another bonus to this dream come true – it’s the FIFA Fair Play Award. Apart from looking to win the coveted Cup, most teams will strive towards winning the FIFA Fair Play Trophy. The award goes to say a lot about the team which wins the same and the way they go about their game. The FIFA Fair Play Award is basically handed over to the team which plays the fairest during the World Cup final tournament.

The award was originally a certificate but soon graduated into a ‘Golden Trophy’ inspired by Sport Billy. Sport Billy in 1982 was an extremely popular football-playing cartoon character and went on to be become an icon of sorts for the FIFA Fair Play Trophy. The Sport Billy inspired trophy was presented to winning teams between 1982 and 1994 and from then on was remodeled into a trophy that resembled a football player. In order for a team to be considered for or to win the FIFA Fair Play Award, it has to make it through to the second round of the competition.

The FIFA Fair Play Award comes with a lot of added advantages. The winning team receives the Trophy, a fair play medal for ever player and official and a diploma. The winning team also receives $50,000 worth of football equipment that’s supposed to be used for the interest generation and development of the game in the team’s respective country.

The FIFA Fair Play Award in the 2006 World Cup tournament was shared by Brazil and Spain. The award was handed over to the two teams for the efforts they put into ensuring that their approach to the game of football remained fair and faultless.
