FIFA World Cup Trophy to make the longest-ever journey around a Host Country
After experiencing a major global football tournament for the first time with the recent FIFA Confederations Cup 2017, Russia is gearing up for an even bigger festival of football in less than 12 months’ time. The game’s flagship event, the FIFA World Cup™, comes to Russia in 2018, and excitement is building by the day in the host nation.
However, it is not only the 11 Host Cities where this excitement can be felt. That is because, from early September, the most recognisable and iconic symbol of this great football event, the FIFA World Cup Trophy™, will start its marathon journey around Russia.
The itinerary for the Russian tour was announced during a ceremony at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, where the captain of the 2018 FIFA World Cup-winning side will lift the trophy in a year’s time.
