Ugandan President Museveni to host FIFA World Cup trophy 

KAMPALA, (Xinhua) -- Uganda’s President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni will host the 2018 FIFA World Cup trophy on March 5th.

Simon Kaheru, the Coca Cola Uganda Public Relations manager told Xinhua on Tuesday that the trophy will arrive on March 5th from Cape Town, South Africa and on the same day be hosted by the President in Entebbe.

The Ugandan President Museveni is incidentally the only person in Uganda allowed to hold the trophy with bare hands, according to the rules of the trophy tour where only Presidents and former winning captains of the World Cup can also hold it.

“We are extremely happy to be hosting the FIFA World Cup Trophy. This makes us proud as Ugandans. It will be a motivational moment as well,” added Kaheru.

The trophy will also be taken to the Coca Cola plant in Namanve, VIP viewing at the Serena Hotel and on March 6th for public viewing at the Lugogo Cricket Oval.

Overall, there are 51 countries where this trophy has been moving between January and April 2018 before it ends up in Russia where the World Cup will be hosted between June 14 and July 15th.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup will be the 21st FIFA World Cup, a quadrennial international football tournament contested by 32 men’s national teams of the member associations of FIFA.
