MLS names Most Valuable Player award after Landon Donovan

Landon Donovan’s farewell tour around Major League Soccer is over — no, seriously, for real this time. And it came with a grand finale.

The league announced Thursday in the run-up to the 2015 SuperDraft that the MLS Most Valuable Player award will now be named after Donovan, who retired from the L.A. Galaxy in December following his record sixth MLS Cup title.

To quote the league release, here are details on the design, done by Tiffany & Co.: “The Landon Donovan MVP Award features a silhouette of Donovan applied to a sterling silver MLS Crest, which is attached to a black, ebonized wood base with a sterling silver collar. The trophy’s silver portion is recessed with a matte finish and the vermeil portion is recessed with a high polish. It stands 12 inches tall, and winners of the award will have their name and their club hand-engraved on the collar.”

And here’s the mockup that the Galaxy tweeted out:

Leave your thoughts in the comments, though, from Sounders supporters at least, I think I already have an idea.
