The FIFA World Cup trophy has arrived in Uganda on a scheduled tour throughout the African continent on Monday.
The trophy had the Africa leg of its global journey with a three-day visit to South Africa before later making its way to Uganda.
FUFA President Moses Magogo and Sports Minister Charles Bakabulindi welcomed the accolade amid excitement and selfies in the plane.
From the airport, the golden icon all players all over the world play for heads to State House where H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni will certify its presence in the country.
The World Cup trophy tour began in 2006 when FIFA and CocaCola started flying it around the world in the build-up to the World Cup in Germany.
This first ever FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour brought the energy and excitement of the world’s most loved football tournament, and it’s most coveted prize, directly to fans for the first time.
Since 2006, every new edition of the FIFA World Cup has brought with it the promise of a new Trophy Tour travelling and touching down in new cities and meeting new fans.
