How much is the DFL Supercup 2021 trophy worth?
Since 2010, the winner of the DFL Supercup gets a beautiful trophy made up of two arms that hold a chrome ball. Each arm represents one competition. One is silver and symbolizes the Champion's Salad Bowl that is handed to the Bundesliga champions.
The other arm is gold and represents the trophy of the German Cup. The trophy is 53 centimeters tall and weighs more than six kilos. The design was a creation by silversmiths Koch & Bergfeld in Bremen.
According to the Bundesliga page, it is insured for €40,000 (47,113.60 dollars). However, the winner of the Super Cup only keeps the trophy for one season and then they must return it to the DFL for the next edition.
