UEFA will unveil a new trophy for UEFA EURO 2008™ on Thursday in Montreux, Switzerland ahead of the competition's qualifying round draw the following day

Modern design
The new UEFA European Championship trophy is 18 centimetres higher and two kilos heavier than the original designed by Arthus Bertrand in 1960 and named after Henri Delaunay, the former president of the French Football Federation. The upper part of the trophy is based on the original and is also made out of sterling silver. The new trophy, created by Asprey London, will also retain its historical name.

On display
It will be officially unveiled at the Montreux Congress Centre by UEFA President Lennart Johansson, UEFA Chief Executive Lars-Christer Olsson and the presidents of the two EURO 2008™ host associations, Ralph Zloczower from Switzerland and Austria's Friedrich Stickler on Thursday at 15.00CET. It will be on display at the qualifying round draw the next day.

You can follow Friday's draw live on uefa.com.
