According to a source, “Lionel wanted to create something special and extravagant to celebrate his proudest moment. He got in touch with entrepreneur Ben Lyons, and they collaborated on the design together.”

Ben, the CEO of iDesign Gold, stated, “Lionel is not only the GOAT (Greatest of All Time), but he’s also one of iDesign Gold’s most loyal customers. He reached out to us a couple of months after the World Cup final.”

“He expressed his desire for a unique gift to commemorate the incredible victory, but he didn’t want the usual choice of watches. So, I suggested gold iPhones with their names inscribed, and he loved the idea.”

Argentina emerged triumphant in Qatar last year, with Messi, aged 35, being named the Player of the Tournament.

According to Ben Lyons, the CEO of iDesign Gold, shortly after the conclusion of the 2022 World Cup, Messi contacted their company expressing his desire to present special gifts to his teammates, board members, and the coach of the Argentina team. As one of iDesign Gold’s most dedicated customers, Messi’s request was met with utmost determination. Instead of opting for a conventional gift like a watch, Messi suggested adorning the latest iPhone model with 24K gold plating. The back of each phone would be engraved with the name and number of each player, along with the logo of the Argentine Football Federation and the inscription “World Cup 2022 Champions.”

The 2022 World Cup proved to be a significant achievement for Lionel Messi, the Argentine national team, and Argentine football as a whole. After a span of 36 years, the country secured their third world championship title (previously won in 1978 and 1986). This victory was especially meaningful for Messi and many of his teammates, as they finally got their hands on the championship trophy after their previous disappointment in the 2014 final.

But the accomplishments didn’t end there. Messi also claimed the prestigious “World Cup Golden Ball” award, recognizing him as the tournament’s standout player. Additionally, Emiliano Martinez earned the title of “Best Goalkeeper,” while Enzo Martinez was honored with the “Best Young Player” award.
