The arrival of the FIFA World Cup™ Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola in Haiti represents another way in which the unifying power of football has helped to bring joy to the Caribbean island’s people in the most challenging of times. As anticipation rises ahead of the visit FIFA.com takes a look at some of the support that football has provided to the Haitian people over the past 13 years.
Over the course of the three-day tour stop, fans of the game will be able to experience several special events planned by Coca-Cola and FIFA, including a close up view of the FIFA World Cup Trophy. On the first day, fans will have the opportunity to enjoy performances by local DJs and dancers, and participate in interactive games, adding to the festive atmosphere that always surrounds the most sought-after symbol of world football. Guests will then enjoy some state of the art holographic football animations, before moving on to the Trophy room for a chance to have their pictures taken with the Trophy.
The following day a special football game featuring two local All-Stars teams will be held at the National Stadium, which had its artificial turf installed with the support received from a Special Projects fund by FIFA in 2011. Local artist Mika Ben will perform the National anthem ahead of the match, and the Trophy will be showcased for the crowd to see. via – FIFA.com
