The legendary World Cup of the International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA) will be presented in the capital’s shopping and entertainment center “Berkarar” on February 7 from 11 am to 12 am.
The famous trophy will visit Turkmenistan for the first time as part of a global journey of the FIFA World Cup™ Trophy Tour. The FIFA World Cup™ will be delivered by representatives of FIFA and The Coca-Cola Company from Tashkent, and after the presentation will continue its “journey” to the next destination point – Yerevan.
FIFA World Cup™ Trophy made of solid gold and weighs more than 6 kilograms. Every football player has spent countless night dreaming of one day rising it above his head. However, the truth is, few of us will ever even get to hold or to see it, except winners of the World Cup and the heads of the states.
“2018 is the fourth time long-standing World Cup sponsor Coca-Cola have joined forces with FIFA to take the trophy to fans across the world. We are very excited to now offer this unforgettable opportunity to football fans of Turkmenistan,” said Goktug Gozutok, Director of “Turkmenistan Coca-Cola Bottlers” Economic Society in an interview to ORIENT. The FIFA World Cup Trophy™ Tour by Coca-Cola is a rare opportunity for fans to see the Original Trophy up close and have their experience captured with a photograph.
As part of the popularization of sports in our country, the Coca-Cola Company holds annually a football tournament among juniors, which is aimed to help young talents show their abilities at the “big field”.
This year the “Trophy tour” is taking place on the eve of the World Cup 2018 in Russia, which will start on June 14.
