THE Fifa World Cup trophy will come to Rwanda in November as part of its 86 tour trip across the world.
The tour, set to last 225 days, is meant to allow thousands of fans to enjoy a rare close-up view of the authentic trophy.
Bralirwa’s Commercial Director Alexander Koech told Times Sport yesterday that the World Cup trophy will arrive in Kigali on November 9 for a three-day tour.
“The trophy is arriving in the country on November 9 and will be presented to the crowd the following day at Amahoro stadium,” he said.
“A football match will be organised to give an opportunity to fans, who want to take photos with the World Cup trophy,” Koech said.
The Trophy will travel 134,017 kilometers and visit every nation in Africa to give African fans the once-in-a-lifetime experience of having their pictures taken with it.
The Fifa World Cup trophy tours Rwanda under the sponsorship of Coca Cola. During its tour in Rwanda, Coca Cola will distribute free tickets to fans in the country to enable them see the Trophy.
Free tickets will be made available to consumers through Coca-Cola promotions.
At events in Kigali, fans will have the opportunity to have a souvenir photo taken of them with the trophy, view a special 3-D movie showcasing memorable moments of the Fifa World Cup, participate in interactive displays and enjoy other entertainment.
The four-month long leg of the Trophy Tour on the African continent which kicks off in Cairo, Egypt today, September 24 was developed through an exclusive partnership between Fifa and Coca-Cola, a Fifa Partner and one of the organization’s longest-standing corporate partners.
