Number 10: Premier League Trophy – $10,000
- Material: Malachite Silver and Gilded silver
- Weight: 25 kg
- Height: 104 cm
Many players, managers, and even fans want to win the premier league trophy at least once in their careers. Many will argue that it’s the toughest league title to win and that alone makes it insanely valuable. But apart from the prestige that comes with winning the title, the premier league trophy on its own is a pretty expensive piece of silverware.
The trophy is made with malachite silver and gilded silver and is valued at 10,000 Dollars but as you’ll later find out it’s not even close to being the most expensive league trophy.
Number 9: UEFA Champions League Trophy – $15,000
- Material: Silver
- Weight: 11 kg
- Height: 74 cm
The champions league is the zenith of European club football and so it’s not surprising that the trophy to be won is a really valuable one. The big ears, as it’s fondly called, is 74 centimeters high and 11 kilograms heavy and it’s made with pure silver. The Uefa Champions League Trophy is worth 15,000 Dollars.
Number 8: Bundesliga Meisterschale Trophy – $57,000
- Material: 925 Sterling Silver
- Weight: 8.5 kg
- Height: 53 cm
The Meisterschale which translates to champions bowl is the name of the trophy given to teams who win the german Bundesliga. The trophy has the names of all the winners since 1903 engraved on it and as a result, it has had to be enlarged on two different occasions in 1981 and 2009.
The current size is said to have enough space for winner’s names until 2026 but from the looks of things, that’s only going to continue to be one name. Anyway, The Meisterschale replaced the victoria which got lost during world war II and has been awarded since 1949. The Bundesliga Meisterschale is insured for 50,000 euros. That’s a little more than 57 000 Dollars.
Number 7: Scudetto Trophy – $66,000
- Material: Sodalite Blue Stone Base with Gold Ring
- Weight: 8 kg
- Height: 58 cm
This is the trophy given to the winner of the “Italian Serie A”. The Scudetto was created way back in the 1920s as a little decoration to be worn by the winners of the Italian top flight. Genoa became the first team to wear it.
The trophy is funnel-shaped with a sodalite base and a gold ring. It’s 8 kilograms heavy and 58 centimeters tall and it’s valued at 66,000 Dollars making it the most expensive league trophy in the world.
Number 6: Afcon Trophy – $150,000
- Material: Gold-Plated Silver
- Weight: 6.3 kg
- Height: 19 cm
The current Africa Cup of Nations trophy is the third of its kind and it was first awarded to Cameroon in 2002. It’s a gold-plated trophy with a ball on the top. On the ball is an engraving of the map of Africa. Designed in Italy, the current Afcon Trophy replaced the African Unity Cup which was last awarded in 2000. It is valued at 1,50,000 Dollars.
Number 5: Ballon d’Or Trophy – $805,439
- Material: Gold
- Weight: 12 kg
- Height: 31 cm
The Ballon d’Or Trophy is the only individual trophy on this list today and it ushers us into our top five. The trophy which was first awarded in 1956 to the best European player in the year under review has grown to be an award for the outright best player in the world, which is now being awarded to the best performing player in both “The Men’s and Women’s games.
The trophy is made of pure gold and it weighs about 12 kilograms. A single Ballon d’Or Trophy is valued at 8,05,439 Dollars. Lionel Messi has won this trophy seven times, followed by Cristiano Ronaldo who won this trophy five times.
Number 4: FA Cup – $1.18 Million
- Material: 925 Sterling Silver
- Weight: 6.3 kg
- Height: 61.5 cm
Winning the FA Cup might not be as big a deal as winning the premier league but the trophy although smaller is actually more than a hundred times the value of the premier league trophy. The FA Cup trophy is made with sterling silver and is valued at 1.18 million dollars. It took designers 250 hours to develop this trophy which stands at a height of 61.5 centimeters and weighs 6.3 kilograms.
Number 3: UEFA Europa League Trophy – $4.5 Million
- Material: Silver with marble base
- Weight: 15 kg
- Height: 65 cm
While the champions league trophy is down in ninth place in our list of most expensive trophies. The Europa League Trophy is up here in third without a shadow of a doubt, the Europa League is the less prestigious of the two competitions, but the trophy that’s handed out to the winners of that competition is a hundred times more valuable than the big is.
The Europa League trophy is made of silver with a base of marble and it’s valued at 4.5 million dollars. It’s also known to be one of the heaviest trophies weighing 15 kilograms. Unfortunately, unlike his older sibling, it doesn’t have handles, so it’s literally more difficult to lift the Europa League trophy than the champions league trophy.
Number 2: Copa Libertadores Trophy – $12 Million
- Material: Sterling Silver
- Weight: 1.6 kg
- Height: 27.9 cm
The Copa Libertadores is to south America what the UEFA Champions League is to Europe. The trophy awarded to the winners is also called the Copa Libertadores or just la Copa for sure. The pedestal of the trophy is made with hardwood plywood and on it are the badges of all previous winners.
The top is made of sterling silver, while the footballer at the topmost is made of bronze but has a silver coating. The trophy is valued at 8.5 million dollars, but the winner goes home with even more – 12 million dollars.
Number 1: FIFA World Cup Trophy – $20 Million
- Material: 18-Karat gold
- Weight: 6.1 kg
- Height: 36.8 cm
The most valuable and most expensive football trophy is found at the apex of the men’s game.

The trophy is made of 18-Karat gold-plated sterling silver, it has bands of malachite on its base. The trophy is designed by Abel Lafleur. It shows the Greek Goddess of Victory, Nike, holding the earth. The trophy is 36.8 centimeters high and 6.1 kilograms heavy and it’s worth 20 million dollars. That makes it the most expensive trophy in the world and by a mile it’s more expensive than the rest of the top 10 put together.
