LAHORE: For the first time in history, the FIFA World Cup trophy is coming to Pakistan.
The fans in Pakistan will get a chance opportunity to have a look at the glittering World Cup trophy at home as it arrives in the country on February 3rd for just one day.
A source said, “The trophy, after arriving in Lahore, will be taken to two or three different venues of the city,” said a source privy to the matter.
The event has been organized by FIFA and its sponsor and the Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) will not have any role regarding the tour.
It is pertinent to mention that FIFA had suspended Pakistan Football Federation last year.
An official said, “We want to revive football in Pakistan and this trophy tour is a step in the right direction to drive interest among football fans in Pakistan”.
