World Altoball Trophy by WhippetWild World Altoball Trophy by WhippetWild
I originally drew thing to the previous image but, after seeing I got the wrong trophy drawn, I decided to use it for something else important.
Call it the "World Trophy".
It is like the World Cup but, different as its requirements vary between whom hosts it, and whom is invited. So it is an invitational-only Trophy.
So at times it can be very serious, with just the best national teams invited, or combination teams like Iberia, Great Britain or Australasia 
or taken less seriously, with States, or Provinces allowed to take part, like New York, New South Wales, or Yorkshire. And seen as a secondary trophy.
Originally created by France and Germany, as a rival tournament against the "Anglosphere" teams who were very strong and would win the 'World Cup' regularly, with all eight apart from Ireland and Wales, having their hands on, and names engraved on the base.
