DELO EHF FINAL4 – New trophy

The winners of the DELO EHF FINAL4 2021 will become the first team to pick up the brand-new EHF Champions League trophy.

The trophy has been redesigned to help welcome a new era of handball, with the current season the first in which the men’s and women’s European premier competitions have been run with the same progression and playing structure. It also reflects the relaunched European Handball Federation and EHF Champions League brands.

A total of 27 designs were received during the tender process for the new trophy, from companies and artists in 12 different European countries. The winning agency was Sustain Awards by Oiko Design Office, a Spanish agency based in Barcelona, which specialises in the design and production of environmentally responsible trophies. The winning design represents a goal and reflects the dynamic movement of a ball hitting the target.

The net is shaped like a shield, intended to reflect the team nature of handball and the need for connection within a team. The trophies are made from cast aluminium, 30 per cent of it recycled, and recycled balls are used for the ball hitting the net, and the finishing touch is a golden bath befitting the winners of the top European competition.

The trophies are 80 cm high, 57 cm wide and weigh 10 kg. The winners’ medals are cut out of the central pentagon within the trophy, linking them directly to it. The winners of both the DELO EHF FINAL4 in Budapest and the EHF FINAL4 in Cologne will lift identical trophies.

Designer Salva Codinah said: “From a designer’s point of view, it will be very interesting, and at the same time very exciting, to see how the players react and interact with the trophy.”
