Football Association Challenge Cup
The Premier League is one of the biggest football leagues in the world. The winner of the PL each year is awarded the Football Association Challenge Cup, also known as the FA Cup. An original design was created in 1871, the updated design was crafted in 1911. This trophy’s design is a simple cup with handles and a lid, featuring vines and grapes along the cup.
Not only is this trophy won in a competition, but the winner’s proceeds are donated to charities each year.

Although it doesn’t have a special name, the trophy from La Liga is one of the top trophies a team can claim. Because La Liga hosts teams like Real Madrid and Barcelona, it is incredibly difficult to win and therefore carries a lot of prestige. For many years the trophy itself was a simple cup with handles but recently underwent a redesign to be more sleek and modern, featuring a ribbon-like design.
Coppa Campioni d’Italia
Italy’s biggest football league is known as Serie A. It hosts the top teams including Roma, Juventus, Napoli, and more. Italians are very passionate about their sports, especially football.

European Golden Shoe
The Golden Shoe has been around since 1967 and is awarded each year to the top goal scorer across all of the European leagues. Interestingly, a scoring system is in place that makes goals scored in high ranked leagues worth more than those scored in lower ranked leagues. The current holder in 2016 is Luis Suarez.
Premier League Golden Glove
Goal scorers aren’t the only ones that get recognized! Goalkeepers are, as well, with the Golden Glove award. Although this trophy is limited to goalies in the Premier League, it is a very prestigious award.
