Philadelphia, PA – Ahead of the 2015 MLS SuperDraft, Major League Soccer announced that the league’s Most Valuable Player award will be re-christened in honor of LA Galaxy legend Landon Donovan.
The new design of the award, created by Tiffany & Co., was unveiled during a special tribute to Landon Donovan held before the Draft. It’s a simple trophy and cements the league’s new branding as here to stay, ‘kickstand’ and all.
“As a child, soccer was merely an outlet for me – a way to express myself.” —Landon Donovan
The award notably features a sterling silver silhouette of Donovan, set in the lower right half of the crest.
