A total of 1,020 unauthorized FIFA World Cup soccer trophies were intercepted on Wednesday by the customs office in Yiwu, Zhejiang province.

Officials have recently moved to strengthen intellectual property protection related to the World Cup in Brazil in June and July. The replica trophies, which were to be exported to Libya, were found by customs agents during a routine check.

A representative of FIFA, the owner of the World Cup trophy's design, later confirmed that the actual-size duplicates were unauthorized.
