So the official 2018 FIFA World Cup trophy is in town after its arrival in Abuja on Wednesday, March 7 and President Muhammadu Buhari touched it.

Ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, FIFA and long-time sponsors Coca-Cola are touring with the trophy.

The tour kicked off in Russia, host of the 2018 FIFA World Cup and will touch down in a total of 91 cities in 51 countries across six continents before the final.


The World Cup Trophy Tour arrived in Abuja on Tuesday
The trophy arrived in the capital city of Nigeria, Abuja at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport aboard a chartered flight at 11 am on Wednesday.

A series of events of the tour followed as the trophy visited the State House in Abuja before football fans had the opportunity to see and take photos with it.

No one can touch the World Cup trophy
The trophy was heavily guarded throughout these events and no one, absolutely no one was allowed to touch it.

From players to the president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick to sports Minister Solomon Dalung to the regular football fan.


Even NFF president Amaju Pinnick and Solomon Dalung are not allowed to touch the trophy

The is is because of FIFA guideline which says that only winners of the tournament.

The only Nigerian that has touched the trophy since it landed in Abuja is President Buhari.


Buhari received the trophy at the State House on Tuesday

Buhari touched and carried the trophy at the event at the State House on Wednesday. He is however allowed to do that as another FIFA guideline allows heads of state to handle the official World Cup Trophy.

He will be the only Nigerian to ever touch the World Cup except the Super Eagles win it come July in Russia.

he shouldn't have been allowed to touch it, knowing fully well that he has bad luck which can affect our performance in the mundial.Since he came in board, everything has turned upside-down.
