Thomas Lyte are humbled to be the designers and makers of the RFU Championship Trophy. Following the re-organisation of the league structure in English rugby, the Rugby Football Union (RFU) created The Championship – the league directly below the Aviva Premiership.
Having already made the trophies for the other national Leagues, Thomas Lyte were commissioned by the RFU to make the largest version possible with the same design. The result was a 65cms trophy, made entirely from sterling silver with gold-plated highlights. The Championship was sponsored by Greene King, and the winner not only receives this beautiful piece of silverware, but also gets promoted to the Premiership.
