New Delhi: A glittering new trophy, designed by the All India Football Federation (AIFF), awaits the 2012-13 I-League Champions. The dedicated trophy will be handed over to the champion team later this month.
The trophy, gold-plated with a full-sized silver football on the top, has been designed in Europe. It will do the rounds every year like it happens across the world.
Kushal Das, general secretary, AIFF said: "It is the endeavour of AIFF to practise the best principles of other Leagues and accordingly we thought to accord a more contemporary look to the I-League Trophy in line with trophies given in European Leagues."
