This is a part of the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola, which is able to see the trophy flown across the 32 nations that will probably be current on the Mundial.
The Vice‑President of Global Sports & Entertainment Marketing and Partnerships at The Coca-Cola Company, Brad Ross, mentioned: “As soccer followers all over the world gear up to assist their groups, Coca-Cola is thrilled to provide followers the chance to expertise the trophy forward of the match.
“The real magic of the FIFA World Cup exists with fans believing in their teams and showcasing their passion for the game.”
“It is an incredible honour to be part of the first stop of the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola. My first FIFA World Cup as a player was when I was just 20 years old, and it is still fresh in my mind – for me, it was a dream come true,” Kaka mentioned.
Casillas added: “It was the highlight of my career when I lifted this very trophy as captain of Spain in 2010. And it is exciting that someone will have that feeling in Qatar later this year. It fills me with great pride to join all of you today, as we kick off the journey of the FIFA World Cup Trophy, bringing it to the fans across the globe.”
Meanwhile, the Black Stars are paired in opposition to Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea in Group H of the World Cup.
