New trophies have been unveiled for the FIBA U19 Basketball World Cups for Men and Women 2019.
The new and contemporary pieces of silverware each feature a basketball sculpted in the shape of a rising star. This symbolizes the emergence of new world-class youth players from raw talent. The two trophies can be told apart based on their colors and the shape of their respective bases.
The new 'rising stars' U19 trophy concept was conceived and designed by WORKS creative agency, who developed the physical trophies in collaboration with Ottewill silversmiths, as well as the official launch film.
The re-design of the trophies is part of the ongoing process of enhancing the brand and position of FIBA's competitions, which began with the revamping of the FIBA Basketball World Cup and Continental Cups trophies in 2017.
