Shared Trophy

So after a bizarre and rare event in rugby earlier today...

...a place to discuss instances of international teams 'sharing the trophy' in football, however big or small the tournament.
To get the easy examples on the board, almost a quarter of all editions of the British Home Championship, and the notable 3-way deadlock for the 2011 Kirin Cup (how did they manage that trophy presentation?)...

That 2011 Kirin Cup was a complete exercise in futility, and somehow the fifth time that tournament had shared winners.

Indian officials had foreseen this eventuality, and after the 1978 IFA Shield final ended in a draw, they held a coin toss to decide which team would keep the trophy for the first six months.

That was not uncommon in the event of a drawn final, e.g. Merdeka and Korean President's Cup had shared finals and had similar instances of each side keeping the trophy for 6 months.
It's not just trophies that are shared, also gold medals.  E.g. 1978 Asian Games, North and South Korea shared them.
Alternatively, in the early days of South American football, matches for the likes of the Copa Newton and Lipton were sometimes drawn and then it would be the away side with the honour.

1975 Pan American Games (Mexico and Brazil, failure of floodlight IIRC during extra time?)
1972 Olympic Games bronze medal (East Germany and Soviet Union)
IIRC, the Coupe van den Abeele (the annual Belgium vs Netherlands match played at FC Antwerp stadium) in case of a draw was awarded to the current holder at that time, except the first official match in 1905 which was won by the Dutch after extra time.

The 1976 King's Cup was won by Thailand and Malaysia,
The 1960 Gossage Cup was won by Kenya and Uganda. But the trophy disappeared...

Deviating to other sports for a moment, in May 1992 the Corbillon Cup (world cup of women's team table tennis), which had been won by a united All-Korea team in 1991, crossed the border from North to South to spend the next year in South Korea.

Also found this from the 1993 CONCACAF Gold Cup between Costa Rica and Jamaica (for some reason they didn't think of using penalties?). By my 'True Bronzer' standards Costa Rica would deserve to be called 3rd-place there, and in your 1972 example Soviet Union would have that right, obviously doesn't change how the physical prizes are/were distributed though which is what this is about.
More semi-examples I've found are this 2009 CONCACAF U-17 Championship (the 4-team 'Championship Round' being cancelled due to swine flu), and the first 5 editions of what is now the African U-17 Championship.

The 1957 Jalco Cup was another competition whose winners, Ghana and Nigeria, shared the trophy.

What a bizarre combination! Isn't there an impressive resemblance between the Jalco Cup photo and this one showing the 2005 Afro-Asia Cup of cricket? Not only between the trophies, but also because they were shared!

I guess one this counts in a way. Nigeria and Ghana earn qualification to the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup, by being the last two remaining in what is effectively the 2018 CAF Women's U-20 Cup of Nations, but they won't be playing eachother for some reason, apparently been that way for a while now, strange.

It's probably just that they don't need to do so.   The format is home/away legs, which can be expensive at youth level where there is less TV/crowd interest.   But yes it is a bit lame not to bother playing a final.

After a waterlogged pitch which prevented the final from being played, the trophy was shared at this year's Algarve Cup:

That trophy looks like it was made of the spare parts from the bottom of Mark's trophy dustbin.

The Asian Youth championship might be the most often shared trophy (see RSSSF) with 9 of the first 20 finals being drawn without a tie-breaker.

E.g. 1975

Sadly the newspapers didn't give a comparable picture for the 1960 Gossage Cup, possibly because there was a crowd riot immediately after the match, and two died in a stampede.

Yesterday's (7 March 2018) final of the Algarve Cup (women) between the Netherlands and Sweden was cancelled due to heavy rain, the trophy shared.

I'm glad that not only was the trophy shared, but the honour of posting about it was shared by both of you  :-)

I think CONMEBOL should have simbolically awarded the 2016 Copa Sudamericana both to Chapecoense and to Atlético Nacional after the plane accident.

The Thai FA suspended all football competitions in October 2016 following the death of the King. The FA Cup's semifinals were not played and all four teams were declared as co-winners.
