SAFF unveils redesigned Custodian of Two Holy Mosques Cup trophy in Riyadh

RIYADH —The Saudi Arabian Football Federation (SAFF) recently unveiled the redesigned trophy of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques Cup at a ceremony in Riyadh, attended by club officials and athletes.

This new rendition of the King's Cup follows the version introduced in the 2011-2012 season and comes after Al-Hilal's remarkable achievement of securing the title for the fourth time, allowing them to retain the original trophy according to the competition's regulations.

Crafted from 925 sterling silver with a lavish 24-carat gold coating, the updated trophy weighs 9.32 kg, symbolizing the unification of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in 1932. Its design, inspired by its predecessors, underscores the enduring legacy and significance of the competition in the region. The trophy features a football-shaped top coated in gold, accompanied by four distinct handles, all adorned with the Kingdom's emblem of crossed swords and a palm tree at its center. The cup's title is meticulously engraved around this emblem, adding to its prestige.

Measuring 54 cm in height, with a base diameter of 17 cm and a width of 18 cm, the trophy is elegantly displayed atop a base crafted from marble and malachite, further enhancing its grandeur. In addition to the honor of lifting this prestigious trophy, the champions of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques Cup are awarded a prize of SR10 million, further adding to the significance of this esteemed competition.
