COBBY: the FCI mascot
The FCI mascot COBBY was presented for the first time on May 6th, 2011 during the FCI press conference on the occasion of the FCI Centenary Winner Dog Show, combined with the VDH-Europasieger Show in Dortmund (Germany). The idea was launched by former FCI President, Hans Müller, a few months before: in his view, our anniversary events (just like major events the Olympic Games, the FIFA World Cup, etc.) should have a Mascot as a symbol. In his words: «The FCI is 100 years and for this major event the FCI deserves and should have a Mascot». The train was on its way and after the 100-year-anniversary COBBY has become a major communication tool for the FCI.
Our mascot, which was designed by the well-known Steiff company in Germany, is perfect as a reward or as a present for anniversary events, but also for any event in general. COBBY is available from the FCI Office. Please do not hesitate to place your order at: Catalogue.
