The Mann Cup was presented by the late Sir Donald Mann, builder of the Canadian Northern Railway, for the Senior Amateur Championship of Canada and was originally a challenge cup. It is a gold cup, appraised at over $60,000 in 1999, and is one of the most valuable trophies in sport.
The Mann Cup was presented by the late Sir Donald Mann, builder of the Canadian Northern Railway, for the Senior Amateur Championship of Canada and was originally a challenge cup. It is a gold cup appraised at over $60,000 in 1999, and is one of the most valuable trophies in sport.
In September, 1925, when the Canadian Lacrosse Association was organized and uniform rules adopted for all competing teams, the Mann Cup was turned over to the C.L.A. by the New Westminster Club who held the trophy at that time. It was then placed into annual competition, with the series alternating from east to west.
The Mike Kelley Memorial Award – A medal presented by Gene Dopp, is given to the player selected by the sports writers as the most valuable to his team during each Mann Cup Series.
