Premier League Trophy

Only five clubs have had the opportunity to lift the Premier League trophy. England's biggest prize is arguably the most covered trophy in international football and replaced the trophy awarded to winners of the English 1st division prior to 1993.

Pure Class

The Premier League Trophy was commissioned by the Premier League prior to the commencement of the new top-tier league championship in England in 1993. The contract for the production of the trophy was given to Asprey of London.

Construction

The Premier League Trophy is a hefty item, weighing in at over 25 kilograms. The trophy was cast from sterling silver and features a malachite plinth. The trophy stands over 70cm tall and almost half a meter wide, making in one of the largest trophies in club football.

The Premier League trophy's design is intended to reflect the proud heritage of English football. The trophy features England's 3 lions, with two featured on the handles and the third symbolized by the winning Premiership captain as he lifts the trophy after winning the tournament.

The names of winning clubs are listed on a silver band that encircles the plinth. The trophy also features the name of the league as well as that of the league sponsor, and is decorated with blue ribbons bearing the sponsor's name.

Previous Trophy

Prior to the creation of the Premier League Trophy the top club in England had been awarded the English Football League Championship Trophy. Popularly known as 'the Lady', the Championship Trophy was cast in 1890 by Vaughtons of Birmingham. At present this historic trophy is awarded to the winner of the 2nd tier Football League Championship.

Trivia
