FIFA Club World Cup Welcome Tour – Auckland

The global tour is visiting the home cities of all seven of the Club World Cup’s participating teams to promote the event which will be played in Morocco between 10 and 20 December 2014.
During the Welcome Tour, the spotlight will be on the FIFA Club World Cup Trophy which will be displayed in every city offering fans a glimpse of the coveted prize that will be awarded to the event winners in Marrakech. The trophy will be on display at Sylvia Park Shopping Mall on Saturday 1 November and moves to Kiwitea Street when Auckland City FC hosts Hawke’s Bay United in their first home match of the new ASB Premiership season on Sunday 2 November.
“The Welcome Tour is a fantastic opportunity to bring the FIFA Club World Cup to the thousands of passionate fans of all the qualified teams. Last year, football fans showed great interest all over the world and this is the second time that this ambitious project has been undertaken. I would like to thank each of the participating clubs for their tremendous support in helping FIFA realise this initiative,” said FIFA President Blatter.
