The Campeones Cup, which beginning on Sept. 19 will be sought after by the respective reigning champions of the two North America leagues, “is made of silver and gilded with 24-karat gold leaf, featuring a petal harvesting an iconic gold one, representing the partnership between the two leagues as well as the North American bragging rights on offer for its winner.”
