The show that will unveil the road to the coveted trophy of the Tournament of Champions will take place at the same venue on Saturday (26.11) and will be conducted by FIFA’s Deputy Secretary General for Football, Zvonimir Boban, and Chief Competitions & Events Officer, Colin Smith. They will be assisted by five-time Russian Premier League winner Sergei Semak and two-time Olympic gold medallist Yelena Isinbaeva.
