The UEFA Europa League Trophy

The UEFA Europa League Trophy is the heaviest of all UEFA silverware despite, unlike other cups awarded in European club competition, having no handles.

The UEFA Europa League Trophy is the heaviest of all UEFA silverware. Tipping the scales at 15kg, it is 65cm high, 33cm wide and 23cm deep.

The trophy, a silver cup on a yellow marble plinth, was designed and crafted by the Bertoni workshop in Milan. Unlike the other cups handed out at European club competitions, the trophy has no handles. Just above the plinth, a group of players seem to be jostling for the ball, when, in fact, they are supporting the octagonal 'cup' which is emblazoned with the UEFA emblem.

The original trophy remains in UEFA's keeping at all times, with a full-sized replica awarded to the winning club. Any club which wins the trophy three consecutive times or five times in total receives a special mark of recognition, with the club then starting a new cycle from zero. This has never happened.

In fact, sustained success has been so elusive that only four captains have managed to lift the prize more than once – most recently, Sevilla FC skipper Javi Navarro as the Andalusians triumphed for a second successive season in Glasgow in 2007.
