PWHL partners with Tiffany & Co. to create the league’s top prize

TORONTO, ON (April 4, 2024) – The Professional Women’s Hockey League (PWHL) announced today its championship trophy, The Walter Cup. The Walter family is a leader in philanthropy and business, and it provided the foundational support that launched the PWHL. The Walter Cup was created in partnership with global luxury jeweler, Tiffany & Co.

The naming of the Walter Cup was proposed by sports icon and PWHL Advisory Board Member Billie Jean King.

“The Walter Cup is the greatest prize a PWHL team can win and the finest gift the players can give their fans,” said King. “The Walter Cup marks a monumental milestone in women’s hockey and for all women’s sports. It recognizes the historic commitment by Mark and Kimbra Walter to make this dream come true for the PWHL players of today and tomorrow.”

Mark Walter, speaking on behalf of his wife, Kimbra, and daughter, Samantha, said, “It is a tremendous achievement to become the best team in the world’s best women’s hockey league. This trophy reflects the level of excellence required to win in the PWHL, and we hope it will inspire championship dreams in young players everywhere.”

The PWHL’s collaboration with Tiffany & Co. represents the House’s nearly 200-year history of designing and handcrafting some of the world’s most revered sports trophies. The angular design of the Walter Cup is inspired by ice with a nod to the six original teams in the league. The Walter Cup weighs approximately 35 pounds, stands 24 inches tall and over 13 inches wide, and features a removable base that will include the engraved name of each year’s winning team. The trophy is made of sterling silver and crafted at the Tiffany hollowware workshop in Cumberland, Rhode Island.

The PWHL regular season concludes on Sunday, May 5, 2024, with the top four teams in the standings advancing to compete in the inaugural PWHL Playoffs. The semifinals and the championship final will be best-of-five series.
