The 2014 FIFA World Cup™ in Brazil is approaching fast. The FIFA World Cup™ isn't just about one country though, it truly is the World's Cup! To celebrate fans of the greatest football event on Earth, FIFA & Coca-Cola are taking the FIFA World Cup™ Trophy on a tour around the world. Football is loved by all South Africans, young and old. But too often old age's limitations end the active and playing days of soccer fans. Not so for one group of grannies. They refused to let their age slow them down. Thus, the Vekhegula Vekhegula football club, Granny's Grannies, was born. The team is comprised of only female players ages 50 and over. Instead of accepting old age's barriers these grannies are choosing to live an active, healthy, and fulfilling lifestyle. The Granny's Grannies football club surprised even themselves with their tenacity. Watch as they receive just one more surprise and a once in a lifetime moment with the FIFA World Cup™ Trophy. The FIFA World Cup™ Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola will both start and end at the location of this year's FIFA World Cup™, Brazil. The 2013-2014 tour will feature 88 countries during the 267-day trip. See history being made! Go to to see who will be on the pitch as part of the Happiness Flag at the 2014 FIFA World Cup™.
