Introducing the UEFA Youth League trophy

The Lennart Johansson Trophy, given to the winners of the UEFA Youth League, symbolises the players' dream journey from raw talents to polished professionals.

UEFA's newest piece of silverware, the Lennart Johansson Trophy is the prize for the winners of the UEFA Youth League, which gives the youth divisions of the continent's top clubs priceless experience of European football.

Named after UEFA's Swedish honorary president, the trophy rises from a raw metallic base to form a bridge in polished sterling silver. The shape of the trophy reflects the mission of the competition – bridging the gap between youth and professional football.

The conjunction of both textures symbolises the forging of the young players, whose ambition is to become the best in Europe. Designed by the Fivefootsix agency in London, the trophy measures 50cm tall and was crafted by silversmiths Thomas Lyte.
