The UEFA Europa League Trophy Tour Driven by Kia will visit eight cities with a goal of collecting football boots for refugees.
Kia Motors and UEFA are launching the inaugural UEFA Europa League Trophy Tour Driven by Kia. The tour will give football fans across Europe the opportunity to see the iconic UEFA Europa League trophy as the competition's 2018/19 knockout stage unfolds.
Throughout the duration of the UEFA Europa League Trophy Tour, fans and players of all ages will be encouraged to donate used and unwanted boots. In partnership with the UEFA Foundation for children, the boots will be taken to the Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan to be given to Syrian refugees of all ages.
A stellar list of former players have signed up to take part; among those to have confirmed their participation in at least one tour leg are Lothar Matthäus, Deco, Andrés Palop and Eiður Guðjohnsen.
