What do we call it?
Hi everybody,

what do we call the cup or trophy usually in sports that rotate among the winners of the competition. For example, if this team wins the sports competition, they will get the cup and return it when the next competition starts again, then the winner of the next competition will get the cup. The cup is just the same cup that rotate among the winners unless if the winner is just the same team.

We call it cup, if it is shaped like a cup or goblet. We say trophy if it īs a different shape. You can also have a shield.

I haven īt heard of the term floating trophy, I īve only ever heard of these trophies referred to as rotating trophies, such as the Stanley Cup, European Cup, America īs Cup etc...

It is a rotating trophy. A rotating trophy is awarded to the competition winner. The rotating trophy is maintained at the winning teams home unit for display until the next competition.
