The Steinfeld Trophy is given annually to the winners of the Major League Lacrosse (MLL) championship. The trophy is contested in a 4-team playoff where the top teams (based on regular season record) compete in a single-elimination format. In 2002 and since 2014, the semifinals and the championship game are on separate weekends. The award is named after MLL founder Jake Steinfeld. Since the league's inception, the championship has been played at a pre-designated neutral location.
