Saudi Arabian Football Federation Unveils New King’s Cup Trophy




RIYADH - The Saudi Arabian Football Federation (SAFF) unveiled the newly redesigned trophy of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques Cup in a grand ceremony held in Riyadh. The event was attended by club representatives, athletes, and media personnel, marking a significant moment in the history of Saudi Arabian football.


The new King’s Cup is an evolution of the previous design that was introduced in the 2011-2012 season. Its unveiling follows Al-Hilal club’s achievement of winning the cup for the fourth time. Under the competition’s regulations, a team that wins the cup three consecutive times or four times in total has the right to keep the original trophy.


The new trophy draws inspiration from past editions, incorporating the same design concept that emphasizes the cup’s historical significance and value in the region. Crafted from 925 sterling silver and coated with 24-carat pure gold, the new King’s Cup weighs 9.32 kg, symbolizing the year 1932 when the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was unified.


Adorned with a football-shaped piece coated in gold and malachite, the trophy features four distinct handles. At its center, the emblem of crossed swords and a palm tree represents the Kingdom. The cup’s name is manually engraved in a circular pattern, adding to its elegance and grandeur.


Standing at a height of 54 cm, with a base diameter of 17 cm and a width of 18 cm, the cup rests on a base made of marble and malachite, reflecting the rich heritage and culture of the Kingdom.


The winner of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques Cup will receive a prize of 10 million Saudi Riyals, adding to the prestige and honor of winning this coveted trophy.

This event marks a new chapter in the history of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques Cup, as the redesigned trophy symbolizes the Kingdom’s commitment to the growth and development of football in the region.
