The 20th edition of the AFC Women's Asian Cup trophy holds a special significance for India as this is the second time the country will be hosting the tournament after 1979.

Slated to be held from 20 January to 6 February in India, the AFC Women's Asian Cup 2022 will see twelve teams compete for the prestigious trophy.

The current AFC Women's Asian Cup trophy was aptly unveiled in Jordan 2018, the first time a country from the West Zone hosted the tournament, as Japan edged Australia 1-0 in the Final to emerge as the first team to lift the new trophy.

With enthralling matches poised for the AFC Women's Asian Cup India 2022, it will be a fitting finale when the champion raises the trophy that was beautifully crafted by world-renowned silversmith Thomas Lyte of London.

The trophy was designed to embody the spirit and essence of the competition and it stands at an impressive 52.5cm in height and weighs 5.5 kilograms of Hallmarked Sterling Silver bullion.

The dazzling silverware required 140 hours of delicate and precise craftsmanship while passing through the hands of eight different craftsmen to ensure the highest quality was delivered. While the trophy incorporates a modern design, there are discrete elements that honour the competition's long history.

The striking handles, which have been cast from six solid silver bars, point to the six participants that played in the first tournament in 1975. At the base of the trophy, eight highly stylized modern women footballers decorate the plinth, capturing the strength and agility of the modern competition.
