    Default So Long Ugly MLS Cup! Hello Tiff & Co.

    Maybe now the MLS cup will actually be a cup!

    http://www.goal.com/en/Articolo.aspx?ContenutoId=937882

    It was announced today the the league has redesigned and renamed the MLS Cup trophy to the Philip F. Anschutz Trophy, effective immediately.

    According to an official MLS release, the trophy ‘reflects the traditions of the game, while providing a dynamic and forward-looking design.’ The trophy will be given out for the first time on November 23rd at this year’s championship game in Los Angeles.

    "The cup also features a map at the base, with a star signifying every MLS city."

    I'm having a really hard time imagining how this won't be ugly.

    'The cup also features a map at the base, with a star signifying every MLS city.'

    We'll see...

    If there is the 'traditional' 1985 'Soccer' ball on it anywhere, they have failed... Good job MLS.

    I'm having a hard time imagining this being any worse than the current one.

    It's gonna need to be modified year-after-year until it's rammed with stars.

    Like renaming it matters, everyone will still call it the MLS cup. It's currently called the Alan I. Rothenberg Trophy, and we all see how much that name gets used.

    Rothenberg Trophy doesn't have such a great ring to it does it???

    Maybe the Alan Cup? Whatever...

    The Cup...

    As long as TORONTO FC appears on it as the winner one day I DUN care.
    NOTICE: Wager with STB: OVER 2 shots on goal in the First half wins a Pint at HT.

    That is a pretty sweet (and expensive) claret jug but you normally only see those for golf.

    That's the US open Cup that you're thinking of. The MLS Cup doesn't have a name.

    The real question of course is: Does it come in a nice powder blue box?

    They can send it in a sack - so long as they send it to Toronto soon.

    I like it!
    Simple. Elegant. And it isn't that ugly thing they've had for years. It definitely is an improvement. Maybe some people won't like it, but I do.

    Apparently there is also an accessory that hangs on the cup that reads "If Found please return to Tiffany and Co. New York City"

    I wish both handles/arm bands joined at the back - not the one at the front...

    Definitely a huge improvement though...

    Carts...

    looks easy to hold up over your head, like when Dichio will hold it above his head after we win the MLS cup next year.
