With the 2018 World Cup just a few months away, the famous trophy is making its way to South Africa this week, with fans being given the chance to see it up close.

The FIFA World Cup Trophy is embarking on a global tour at present as we gear up for the showpiece event in Russia in June, and on Thursday it will land in Johannesburg after Mozambican football fans got their opportunity to check it out.

A statement released today said: 

“After visiting various cities across the world, the official trophy will touch down from Mozambique to Johannesburg on Thursday, 1 March where it will be accompanied by FIFA and Coca-Cola dignitaries and South African hip-hop sensation, Cassper Nyovest who has teamed up with Jason Derulo for the Coca-Cola FIFA anthem.

“Fans in and around Soweto will have the unique opportunity to relive the excitement that came with the World Cup in 2010. Coca-Cola urges fans in and around Soweto to come out in their numbers to see the official FIFA World Cup™ at Maponya Mall on Friday, 2 March. There will be a number of fan activities including appearances by Cassper Nyovest.”

Bafana Bafana legend, Lucas Radebe, is accompanying the trophy as it travels into Johannesburg and onto Cape Town, and he has urged fans in Mzansi to get involved.

He said, “We all know how big the FIFA World Cup is for us to have an opportunity to relive the 2010 excitement is something to be cherished. I urge people to come out in their numbers and join in on the fun and festivities.”
