When U18 FC Barcelona Lassa was crowned ADIDAS NEXT GENERATION TOURNAMENT in Berlin, one of the things that caught the attention of people attending the game during the awards ceremony was that, beside the championship trophy, all the players were awarded with champion rings by Denver Nuggets star Kenneth Faried. This is the first time that rings have been awarded to the winning team of the tournament and they are expected to be part of the competition in future editions, too.
The rings were an idea by the main sponsor of the tournament, adidas, who thought it would be nice to throw in some kind of individual prize for the members of the winning team aside from the collective trophy. The design of each 55-gram ring, crafted by Hong Kong Sheunghop Jewelry, features a prominent silver ANGT logo top, surrounded by 26 brilliant cut cubic Zirconia stones. The lateral faces of the ring also show custom writings indicating the year and the city hosting the tournament.
