Calcutta Cup

Featuring exquisitely ornate king cobra handles and viceroy elephant crown, the Calcutta Cup is the world's oldest and most beautiful international football trophy. Made on the direction of the Calcutta Football Club in 1878, from 270 melted down silver rupees, it has been contested annually since 1879 by the national sides of England and Scotland.

Webb Ellis Cup

The Rugby World Cup trophy was named after the legendary schoolboy first thought to have 'picked up the ball and run' way back in 1823. Adorned with satyr and nymph handles and green man embossments, it is a 19th Century reworking of a design that dates to the 1740s. Each team to lift the famous trophy is awarded one to keep. Our trophy was awarded to Martin Johnson's England in 2003.

Curator Hire

Take an exclusive tour of the World Rugby Museum with its creator Curator Phil McGowan. Adding rich contextual detail to the objects, galleries and exhibits, Phil will share with you the secrets of what goes on behind the scenes and what didn't make it on to the labels. Or Phil could come to you and deliver lecture style presentations on the history of rugby, the RFU, Twickenham Stadium or the subject of our latest special exhibition.
