TOMORROW morning, the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola will touch down at the Norman Manley International Airport. The FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola arrives with the official one-of -a-kind FIFA World Cup Trophy.
There will be a small welcoming party, including Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller.
The FIFA World Cup will commence its Caribbean leg of the world tour by Coca-Cola when it lands on Jamaican soil. Jamaica has the honour of being the first Caribbean nation to host the 2013 FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour, an incredible achievement for the small nation, adding to previous historical feats in FIFA achievements.
Coca-Cola's local distributors, Wisynco, will then host the trophy at their headquarters before it is transported by KIA to the cocktail reception tomorrow evening.
Tamara Ward, country manager for Coca-Cola Jamaica, expressed delight with her company's association with such a mega event. "We are all pleased to be such a big part of something so great. The FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour transcends borders and represents something remarkable and Coca-Cola is proud to be involved in this journey for that is what it truly is.
"I just hope Jamaicans will enjoy and remember the historic events set to occur when the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour embarks upon the island," she said.
Ward will also be present to welcome the travelling delegation when the trophy arrives tomorrow.
An official unveiling of the trophy will be held later on, with a transient evening planned. Entertainment will be in the form of David Correy, who will perform the Coca-Cola World Cup 2014 anthem, The World is Ours.
The evening will be complete with a first look experience as the trophy will be unveiled for the first time with those who has made tremendous contributions to Jamaica's football development over the years on hand.
Several thousand Jamaicans will have the opportunity to see the genuine FIFA World Cup Trophy on Sunday at the National Indoor Arena. The Trophy Tour will feature symbols of the vibrant Brazilian culture with music and dance.
Ticket holders will be treated to games such as Football Tennis, videos including Jamaica's first-ever hologram theatre featuring a 15-minute presentation about the FIFA World Cup.
The Wall of Happiness inside the tour allows all fans who come to sketch their names or graphics on the wall. Jamaicans from all walks of life will be immortalised by leaving their mark that they were present at that historic day in football history.
The wall will be later divided into sections and framed to be donated to schools, government offices and charitable organisations to share in this momentous occasion.
There will be so much to see and feel at the Trophy Tour, including an up-close view of the trophy, and a snapshot keepsake for all in attendance with the trophy.
