Heading to Zambia: Soccer legend Nwankwo Kanu and the Emirates FA Cup trophy.

The Emirates FA Cup will touch down in Lusaka next week (October 12), giving football fans the chance to see the iconic trophy for themselves as well as meet soccer legend Nwankwo Kanu.
Emirates will be bringing the trophy accompanied by Emirates FA Cup ambassador and former Nigeria international Nwankwo Kanu to Zambia and then on to Zimbabwe as part of a four-day tour.
Kanu, a three-time FA Cup winner, will spend time at a coaching clinic for pupils at Kamwala and Libala High Schools. He and the trophy will then travel to Harare, Zimbabwe where they will spend a further two days attending events similar to those in Zambia.
Lucky winners of a competition on ZNBC’s weekly Sports On programme, which airs every Thursday 15:00hrs, will also have the chance to meet the football star and have their pictures taken with him and the trophy.
ZNBC is the media partner for the Zambia 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 Lusaka, along with one of football’s legends Nwankwo Kanu,” said Emirates Country Manager for Zambia Hamad Al Ali.
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 direct from Kenneth Kaunda International Airport to Dubai, providing travellers with convenient access to more than 150 destinations around the world.

  2. Emirates, have you got clearance from UP.NDonkeys, under5 and the tribal chiefs? You can’t just walk into their country Dundumwezi and display your Cup, instead of displaying the portrait of under5.

    ….oh my sorry, you will be in Lusaka….that does not need clearance, not an issue with President Lungu……kikikikikiki

  4. Yaba. Another branded excuse to shamelessly promote Emirates – why don’t they get the money they’re paying Kanu to support a football school in Zambia? Who advises these clowns?

  6. The timing of this visit is very bad. Zambia has been ousted from 2018 Fifa world cup by Nigeria and Ng’onga’s mother home has been attacked because people are angry. Now they bring Kanu with the FA cup and Kanu is a Nigerian icon representing the team that ousted us – THIS IS LIKE PUTTING THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN. Prepare adequate security for Kanu and the Trophy since we have lots of disgruntled elements that may disrupt the event out of share ignorance.

  7. I do not understand the significance of bringing that trophy to Zambia. What value is it going to add?

    • My brother its a brainwashing exercise. Europeans have always known that Africa is fertile ground for all their products. Products that make Africans admire European achievement and forget about their own. Even the English Premier League that has all you Africans claiming loyalty to clubs thousands of kilometres away is part of brainwashing you. You now have Africans who support Man U, Chelsea Arsenal but don’t know their own clubs. We will never develop if all we do is admire European products
