Heading to Zambia: The Emirates FA Cup trophy.
HARARE - The Emirates FA Cup will touch down in Harare this week (October 14), giving football fans the chance to see the iconic trophy for themselves as well as meet soccer legend Nwankwo Kanu.

Kanu, a three-time FA Cup winner, will spend time at a coaching clinic for pupils at Prince Edward and Churchill High Schools.
Lucky winners of a competition on ZBC will also have the chance to meet the football star and have their pictures taken with him and the trophy.

ZBC is the media partner for the Zimbabwe leg of the FA Cup tour, in which competition winners will be entered into a draw for a top prize of two tickets, flights and accommodation to watch the Emirates FA Cup final in London in May 2018.

"Emirates shares Zambia's passion for football. That's why we are excited to bring the Emirates FA Cup trophy to Harare, along with one of football's legends Nwankwo Kanu," said Emirates Commercial Manager for Zimbabwe Fahad Bastaki.

This is the second tour of Africa the Emirates FA Cup is making. In 2016, the trophy made its maiden tour of Africa with stop-overs in Ghana and Kenya.

Emirates became the title sponsor of the Emirates FA Cup the 2015/16 season as part of a three-year sponsorship deal with England's Football Association.

The airline flies once a day from Harare International Airport to Dubai, providing travellers with convenient access to more than 150 destinations around the world.
