7 Best Fantasy Football Trophy Ideas (Updated 2022)
Now that August has rolled around, millions of sports fans around the world have their attention turned to one thing: winning their fantasy football league.
Getting bragging rights over your friends or coworkers is always a hugely satisfying way to conclude the fall, but what's a league championship worth without a trophy to help you rub your victory in even further?
Here are some of the best types of trophies you can choose for your fantasy football league.
Fantasy Football Trophy Ideas
7. Championship Banner
Looking for something to hang from the rafters? Or maybe just your wall. A banner on pennant announcing the league champion each year gives the winners something to keep, rather than passing around a trophy. That means your buddy who hasn't won the league in a decade still has proof of that time Jamaal Charles won them a championship.
6. Championship Ring
While this is not a typical trophy, the championship ring can really make you feel like you won the Super Bowl. These large, obnoxious rings make a statement when you walk into your yearly draft. Once you rack up a few wins, you could sport some on two hands. The championship ring is also typically the cheapest of the options on this list.
5. Armchair Quarterback
A spin on the traditional trophy, the armchair quarterback trophy has always been a symbol of fantasy football. Of course, that's because fantasy owners are exactly that — an armchair quarterback. Yell at the TV, saying you could make that throw. However, you'll have less to yell about, since you're the champ.
4. Beer Growler (Jug)
College football fans know about The Little Brown Jug, which Michigan and Minnesota compete for. It's cool in the NCAA, but a decorated beer growler certainly feels more at home in a fantasy football competition. You can even get a league logo printed on there and add the winner's name each year.
3. Championship Cup
The Stanley Cup has it right. Why go for a normal trophy when you could get a massive championship cup? Of course, the bigger the better. Use it like a normal trophy, showing off to everyone that enters your home how smart you are, or fill that baby up with whatever your adult beverage of choice is and celebrate! You're a champion, so you make your own rules.
2. Engraved Trophy
The old classic is one of the best. An engraved trophy is the standard, with every champion's name engraved into it after their win. It is the favorite of the league-mate that won on a fluke since they can forever point to their name on the trophy. It also helps to create tradition around the league, much like the "Shiva" in The League.
1. Championship Belt
While it's also not an actual trophy, try to tell any professional fighter that this isn't the greatest. Hang your championship belt above your mantle, put it over your shoulder whenever you go out, or even wear it to bed. There are very few things in life that make the same kind of statement that a championship belt makes.
