Bhutanese football fans will get a lifetime opportunity to catch a glimpse of the Brazil’s 2014 Fifa World Cup Trophy.

FIFA World Cup trophy is scheduled to be brought to Bhutan on December 20 during the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour 2014.

The trophy is slated to arrive here via Bangladesh before travelling to Nepal the next day.

Speaking to Nepalese media Shadab Khan, Coca-Cola’s Country Manager of Nepal and Bhutan said the Trophy will have a VVIP status. Only the past World Cup winning captains and the Head of the States will be allowed to touch it.

In its previous tour before the 2010 World Cup, the trophy travelled to 94 cities of 84 countries, where 44 Head of the States held the trophy. “The trophy will travel to 88 nations this time,” said Shadab.

Since the trophy will be accompanied by a World Cup winning captain in a special FIFA jet, its arrival to Bhutan is subjected to getting approval from the Bhutanese government, sources said.

Bhutan Football Federation officials said they are waiting for response from Coca-Cola, the official sponsor of FIFA worldcup. 

According to Bangladeshi media Bangladesh is the first country in South Asia where the trophy will be brought (on December 17) and after a three-day visit, the trophy will be taken to Bhutan, Nepal and India and then it will go to Thailand as part of trophy’s world-wide tour that will be end at World Cup host nation Brazil in 2014.
