Excitement is gradually building for the Coca-Cola FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour 2013 fan experience on Sunday, October 6.

According to Tamara Ward, Coca-Cola's country manager, the experience is going to be one of the largest events ever undertaken in Jamaica and several thousand fans locally will experience it.

The FIFA World Cup has been the symbol of football supremacy, as it showcases the best footballing talents worldwide. Jamaica is one of the select destinations for the Coca-Cola FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour and football fans across the island only need to redeem four specially marked Coca-Cola labels to get tickets to access this once-in-a-lifetime experience. This has been made possible through an international partnership with Coca-Cola and FIFA.

On Sunday, October 6, the National Indoor Sports Arena opens its gates to a massive exhibition of Brazilian entertainment, football skills and the authentic FIFA World Cup Trophy.

"The experience actually encompasses the National Arena and the National Indoor Sports Complex," Ward said.

"The entire day is divided into one hour shifts for the full exhibition. The shifts are assigned on the tickets so patrons need to review their tickets carefully so they do not miss their shifts, it is advised to be there at least 30 minutes before the time on the tickets. Each fan will be invited to a one hour presentation filled with music, games and many other visual stimulating spectacles including a never-before-seen in Jamaica, holographic display all surrounding the FIFA World Cup Trophy," Ward explained.
