12447 Yatescup

This minor planet is named after the Yates Cup, a Canadian football trophy awarded to the yearly winner of the U Sports university football conference. It is the oldest football trophy in North America that is still in use. It is named after Dr. Henry Brydges Yates, who first donated it.

The symbol of this minor planet is a cup, with a football (an eye shape with two stitches in the center) posed sideways in the opening.
