Mr. Ihab Daoud Abdellatif, Managing Director of Dal Food commented:Our hosting of the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour in Sudan for the first time is a source of pleasure and satisfaction to us, and also of inspiration and encouragement to the Sudanese football community and to the country as a whole. We do hope that this historic visit becomes an incentive to our national team to participate in the World Cup finals in the near future.


After the press conference, Coca Cola is organizing several events over the coming two days to celebrate the visit of the trophy to Khartoum. These events afford the general public, particularly the youth, the opportunity to see the FIFA World Cup.

At the same time, Lucas Rachow, FIFA ‎Head of Services & Partnerships added, “We are pleased to renew our partnership with Coca Cola and organize the fourth FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour as this would allow the football fans in Sudan and around the world to see the most famous trophy. As the fans prepare to watch the 2018 FIFA World Cup, we want them to be ready to live this unique experience and enjoy the championship this summer.
