Is it related to the Olympic Games?

G: The Football Association trophy that was awarded at the London 1908 games?

Not Olympic related so not the 1908 FA Trophy

Yes and no!

The cup was awarded after a match. But both teams beat other teams beforehand

The event itself has been played on other occasions, before and since, but this cup hasn't been awarded

Was the winner of the trophy a former Eastern bloc country?



The feeling of utter devastation when you pick up your mug and realise you already finished your tea.

Guess at The Coppa del Duce
A second trophy won by Italy in 1934, after the final, given by Mussolini


"Italians won the cup on home terrain and Mussolini got what he wanted- to show off his country on the world fold. Not only that, in more materialistic terms, Il Duce got to show off the second trophy the winners were going to lift – the “Coppa Del Duce”, an extraordinary edifice that was six times the size of the actual tournament trophy. The self absorbed Italian dictator had triumphed in his ambitions".

Goal!
Exactly that. The Coppa can now be found in the Museo del Calcio, Coverciano.

This would suggest the Coppa isn't quite six times the size of the 14 inch high Jules Rimet Trophy Smile

From Trump to Mussolini in one quiz. Shot EB. Over to you.
