The original trophy of the FIFA World Cup has arrived in Dhaka earlier this morning for a 36-hour tour accompanied by a seven-member FIFA delegation including former French World Cup winner Christian Karembeu.
The World Cup trophy was taken to Radisson Blu Water Garden Hotel in Dhaka in presence of tight security. Afterwards, the trophy is scheduled for a visit at the President’s official residence, Bangabhahan, in the afternoon before being¬†taken to the Prime Minister’s residence, Gono Bhaban, in the evening.
“The trophy will be displayed for all at the Bangladesh Army Stadium in Banani on Thursday afternoon. Some invited guests and winners of Coca Cola draws will get an opportunity to take pictures with the trophy,” Abu Nayeem Shohag,¬†general secretary of the BFF, informed the media yesterday.
“We believe the trophy tour will be the talk of town and strengthen our football.”
The journey of the World Cup trophy has started from May 12 with the aim of spreading the message of peace. Earlier, the trophy came to Bangladesh for two days in December 2013.
