FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour to Land in Cairo Next Month


Visiting more than 50 countries in six continents, the fourth FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola has announced its impending visit to Cairo on March 15.

“In the world of sports, no symbol stands stronger than the FIFA World Cup Trophy. We are extremely happy to partner with Coca-Cola once again to bring the trophy to football fans around the world,” said Gianni Infantino, the President of FIFA.

The much-anticipated event, which is organized under the auspices of the Ministry of Youth and Sports, is not only intended to give Egyptian football fans the chance to come face-to-face with the most prestigious trophy in the world of football, but also to celebrate Egypt’s qualification to the World Cup for the first time in 28 years.

“When Egyptians unite, they make history. 2018 will witness Egyptians coming together for the FIFA World Cup; therefore, Coca-Cola is bringing the trophy to Egyptians who will not get the chance to travel to Russia and watch their national team compete,” said Karim Salah Eldin, the General Manager of Coca-Cola Egypt.

Although this is not the first time the trophy has made its way to Egypt, Khaled Abdel Aziz, the Minister of Youth and Sports, emphasized the significant timing of this year’s visit.

“We are confirming our full support towards this national celebration, which highlights Egypt’s abilities to unite and achieve greatness by playing in the World Cup. Our national football team has been able to ignite the enthusiasm of the Egyptians to achieve a long-awaited dream, and we look forward to watching them exert their utmost efforts during the World Cup,” Abdel Aziz said.

The FIFA Trophy will visit Cairo from the Ivory Coast, later heading to Italy for a tour around Europe before reaching Argentina.
