THE wait is over. The eagerly awaited Fifa World Cup trophy will be on full display at Amahoro stadium this afternoon.
The authentic trophy, which touched down at Kigali International Airport last evening aboard a Coca-Cola branded chartered plane was coming from Burundi.
At the airport, the trophy was received by officials from the Ministry of Sports and Culture (Minispoc), Bralirwa Management and dignitaries from the Rwanda Football Federation, Ferwafa.
Two exhibition games are on cards; a match pitting Amavubi academy and U-15 football team and another game between two Amavubi select sides.
Apart from a souvenir photo, fans will have a chance to view a special 3-D movie showcasing memorable moments of the FIFA World Cup.
After a VIP viewing at Serena Hotel later in the evening, the trophy is expected to head to Kampala, Uganda on Thursday.
The 134,017km tour was developed through an exclusive partnership between FIFA and Coca-Cola, a FIFA Partner and one of the organization’s longest-standing corporate partners.
