The Champions League Football Trophy
Since it’s formation in 1955 it’s a competition that unites the country. The Champions League is a trophy where teams from all across Europe compete to see who the best is. You can only be entered into the Champions League if you finish in a certain place at the end of a league season (typically 1st – 4th).
We have a few similar style cups in our football cups section from £4.50 each.
The FA Cup Football Trophy
The FA Cup has always been a place where the underdogs can triumph. It’s a football tournament in which fans and players alike take their mind off the League to focus on. Often teams from lower divisions will pit their skills against some of the best players in the world. On so many occasions it has been proven that the underdogs can rise up and shock the country. The FA Cup football trophy was founded in 1871 with all the England teams entered into this competition. Once the final is reached, Wembley gears up to determine a winner.
The Scottish League Cup
The cup has its origins in a regional cup competition called the Southern League Cup which was introduced in 1940 when wartime restrictions led to a suspension of the Scottish Cup. This tournament was largely regional and did not involve all of the teams who comprised the Scottish Football League prior to the outbreak of war. The first official Scottish League Football Cup was contested during the 1946–47 season.
The Welsh Premier League Cup
The competition was established in 1992 and is considered to be the second-most important domestic cup competition for Welsh football clubs, after the older and more prestigious Welsh Cup.Probably one of the most ornate football trophies ever made.
The Northern Ireland Football League Cup
