The trophy that was dropped is not from this year but from last year (2021), when the Train also won the Amapá title, but the trophy was only delivered days after the final, because of an action in the Superior Court of Sports Justice (STJD).
THE piece was conceived by the plastic artist from Amapá, Wagner Ribeiro, makes reference to 30 years of professional football in the State, highlighting the phenomenon of the equinox that takes place in Macapá, the only capital of the country divided by the imaginary line of Ecuador, and honors the vice-president of the FAF, Paulo Roberto Rodrigues, who died in a victim of Covid-19.
The president of the Train, Socorro Marinho, assured that there was little damage and the trophy has already been sent for recovery and no part was totally damaged.
