Speaking at the event, Rizwan U. Khan said, “Coca-Cola Pakistan has always been the pioneer in supporting causes that are dear to the hearts of our people, taking the lead and exploring new horizons that no one else has ventured to explore. We all know that in recent years the popularity of football has increased exponentially in our country, transcending ethnic, linguistic and even income boundaries. This sport, incidentally the most popular sport in the world, deserves support for its growth and blossoming in Pakistan too. Bringing the FIFA World Cup Trophy to Pakistan is just the start Coca-Cola Pakistan is making. Plans are already underway for launching a nationwide, grassroots level football promotion campaign, and in the coming weeks you will certainly hear or read about these!”
If this wasn’t enough the FIFA trophy was also displayed at the second #CokeFest in Lahore open for public viewing. The CokeFest, held at Lake City Lahore was attended by thousands of football enthusiasts, who were given the unique opportunity of getting up close and personal with the legendary Trophy. We can’t help but feel jealous of everyone who got to enjoy both the #CokeFest and the FIFA Trophy.
