FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) is an international governing body which associates with football as a sport. But over the years, FIFA always has a World Cup Trophy Tour.
However, it’s unfortunate that Uganda cranes won’t be participating in the FIFA 2018 after being beaten by the Egypt team. But on the other hand, the East African community is honored to be among the 51 across the 6 continents to host the World Cup Trophy.

It will be a momentous occasion because it will help in promoting tourism in Uganda.
This will be the second time Uganda hosts the FIFA World Cup Trophy tour. The first time was in November 12th 2009 where the president of Uganda received the trophy. President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni will have another opportunity to receive the trophy on the 5th of March. Later on, the public will also have a moment with the trophy at Lugogo Cricket Oval.
The world cup trophy is an international guest and will be accorded high level of security. The NCS General Secretary Nicholas Muramagi, representing government noted the trophies impact on Uganda.
