Romani FIFA 2014 World Cup Stamp

With the occasion of the 20th edition of the 2014 FIFA World CupTM, Romfilatelia introduces into circulation the postage stamps issue dedicated to this sports competition, taking place from June 12th to July 13th, 2014, in Brazil, and hosting 32 national teams from all the continents. The event represents an occasion of joy not only for football fans, but also for philatelists.
Since the beginning of this international football competition, two trophies having different shapes and names crowned the victory: the Jules Rimet Trophy, at the world cups between 1930 and 1973, and the FIFA World Cup Trophy, at the world cups since 1974 to the present day.
The “Jules Rimet Trophy” originally known as “Victory” (Goddess of victory), was designed by the French sculptor Abel la Fleur. In 1970, Brazil won outright this trophy, made of solid gold, and fixed on a green malachite base. But in 1983, the “Victory” trophy was stolen.
The 2014 FIFA World CupTM is the most important football competition, gathering with the occasion of these intensely disputed matches the world’s national football teams, qualified for this final tournament. The tournament takes place according to the rules governing the winning of a final trophy, the Cup of the game. The next editions, after the tournament in Brazil, will take place in the Russian Federation in 2018 and Qatar in 2022.
The 2014 FIFA World Cup postage stamps issue consists of four postage stamps with the same face value of lei 2.40. The stamps present the dynamic phases of a football game, depicting four moments of a match and combining the link between the messages of the images and the beauty of this team sport.

It was in England that the football was born but in Brazil where it lives in its richest and most natural form.
Brazil is the host country of the 20th FIFA World Cup, for the second time in history, once again after 64 years. The Football World Cup 1950 in Brazil was remembered after thrilling and dramatic ending with tragic consequences. In the last game of the tournament Uruguay won against the absolute favourite 2: 1 (0: 1) in front of 200,000 spectators! The defeat created despair for the whole nation – even about thirty self-murders were committed! Since that time the Brazilians are the only ones who have won five titles (1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002) – and once again all roads take us to Maracana, that cult place of this populous country and the world’s football.
