FIFA Women’s World Cup trophy arrives in Nigeria
The original FIFA Women’s World Cup trophy to be competed for by 32 teams from across the globe from July 20 to August 20 arrived in Abuja on Saturday afternoon.
The trophy arrived in Nigeria after being taken to the three other African countries which will participate in the finals — Morocco, South Africa and Zambia.
Nigeria is the fourth leg of the 32-leg trip the trophy is undertaking before heading to Australia and New Zealand.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that both Australia and New Zealand are the joint hosts of the biggest FIFA Women’s World Cup in history.
The trophy will be on display at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja from 12 noon on Sunday, with a photo session planned for a number of invited guests.
Only four countries have ever won the trophy, namely the United States, Germany, Norway and Japan.
The US have won it on four occasions and Germany have lifted it twice, while Japan and Norway were champions once each.
