The FIFA Women’s World Cup Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola will include several interactive elements and surprises, setting the stage for what's expected to be the largest live spectator sporting event in Canada’s history and the biggest FIFA Women’s World Cup to date.
Fans will get a taste of the tournament at the custom-designed Fan Experience, where they can face off with the Coca-Cola Robot Goalie, record a cheer for their favorite team, hang out in the FIFA locker room, play a 16-person foosball game or learn tricks from expert freestylers.
The experience takes guests through the winner’s tunnel to the trophy display, where fans can take photos with the FIFA Women’s World Cup Trophy. Afterwards, guests will cap off their experience with a limited-edition aluminum bottle of ice-cold Coca-Cola.
“As the female stars of the game prepare to take center stage, it is our honor to bring supporters across Canada the trophy that will eventually be lifted by the next FIFA Women’s World Cup champions,” says Thierry Weil, FIFA Marketing Director. “We are pleased to once again be working with Coca-Cola in sharing our love of football with the fans ahead of this historic tournament.
