The original FIFA Women’s World Cup Trophy, which 32 teams from around the world will compete for from July 20 to August 20, arrived in Abuja, the federal capital of Nigeria, on Saturday afternoon.

The three other African nations that will compete in the finals—Morocco, South Africa, and Zambia—have already received the prestigious trophy on tour.

Before travelling to Australia and New Zealand, the two nations serving as joint hosts of the largest FIFA Women’s World Cup in history, Nigeria is the fourth stop on the Trophy’s 32-leg trip.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup championship will be the first to be spread across two confederations, taking place in 10 venues across two countries and two distinct confederations.

In total, there are six venues spread across five distinct Australian cities, four venues in New Zealand, and just two venues in Sydney, Australia. These are the Sydney Football Stadium and the Stadium Australia, which is the venue for the Final match.
