World Cup Trophy delights admirers

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

The fabled FIFA World Cup trophy went on display before admirers yesterday on the grounds of Camden House in the Botanical Gardens.

However, a misinterpreted remark by sponsor Bruce Barritt led to some being turned away.

Mr Barritt was quoted as saying “hundreds of members of the public” would get a chance to see the iconic trophy between 3pm and 5pm before the cup was whisked off on its continuing tour leading up to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

However, those who arrived without tickets were told by security for the event that it wasn't open to the general public.
