The global leg of the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola has hit our city as the cup landed in Nairobi from Addis Ababa on Monday.
The six-kilogram Fédération Internationale de Football Association (Fifa) World Cup trophy, made of solid gold will be displayed at the KICC on Tuesday and fans will have a chance to view and take photos.
Only President Uhuru Kenyatta allowed to touch it on Monday.
“As one of the most recognized sports symbols in the world, and a priceless icon, the trophy can only be touched and held by a very selected group of people that include former winners of the Fifa World Cup and Heads of State,” said Mr. Nzioka Coca-Cola’s brand manager.
Coca-Cola stated that free tickets to view the trophy will be made available at the pavilion sites in the route cities and distributed through the local partners. So do not pass a lifetime chance to be near the trophy.
As the excitement around the trophy rings in our minds, Kenyan artists have a chance to do renditions of this year’s World Cup anthem — Colours by Jason Derulo. Coca-Cola has invited the top local artists from South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Mozambique and Uganda to create uniquely African versions of the anthem for each country to celebrate people’s passion for football through music.
By June this year just before the start of the World Cup in Russia, the trophy will have gone to 51 countries and 91 cities across the globe.
