Visa Brings 2018 FIFA World Cup Winner’s Trophy To World’s Most Glamorous Venue In Dubai
(18 May 2017)


The global payments technology company and an official FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) Partner, held a showcase yesterday for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Winner’s Trophy at the glamorous Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai, to bring together Visa’s partners, clients and media personalities.  

Visa is the exclusive payment services partner of FIFA through 2022.  The worldwide partnership gives Visa global marketing and activation rights to all FIFA events including the FIFA World Cup™. The links between FIFA and Visa allow the world’s leading payment brand to deliver tangible brand affinity, loyalty, equity and preference, via the world’s most popular sport, football.

Commenting on the event, Karim Beg, Head of Marketing – MENA, Visa, said: “Starting with this year’s FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017, we are excited to celebrate the love of football with the world. With only a few months to go until the next tournament, this event is an exciting opportunity for us to give UAE fans an exclusive viewing of the trophy of dreams.”

“Given the passion for football in the region and as part of our long-term strategy of sponsoring world-class sporting events and connecting clients, partners and people across borders, we felt the need to bring the 2018 FIFA World Cup Winner’s Trophy to the UAE”, added Beg.

During the event, the 2018 FIFA World Cup Winner’s Trophy was displayed on a podium offering all guests a special opportunity to have their pictures taken with the world’s most recognized sports trophy.

Visa is one of seven FIFA Partners with global rights to a broad range of FIFA activities, including the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 and the 2018 FIFA World Cup™.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup™ will commence in June next year and a total of 64 matches will be played in 12 venues located in 11 cities. The final will take place on 15 July in Moscow at the Luzhniki Stadium. Visa cardholders will have the chance to benefit from exclusive privileges and surprises for the duration of the world’s most popular sporting competition.

FIFA fans from Doha and Riyadh will also have a chance to share a special moment with the world-famous trophy, when Visa hosts events in these football-loving cities over the coming month for cardholders and clients.
