President Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to receive the trophy later today at State House in Nairobi.
The legendary trophy will be escorted by former Brazil defender Juliano Belletti, who won the World Cup in 2002.
The 2002 world cup winner will be a trophy tour ambassador for the FIFA world cup trip in Kenya.
On Friday, May 27, Kenyans will get the opportunity to see the trophy and even snap selfies with it at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC).
However, football's most coveted trophy arrives in Kenya amid doubt over the sport's future. Because of political influence, Kenya is now banned from the game by FIFA.
Kenya will not compete in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, according to the CONFEDERATION of African Football (CAF), after being thrown out of the forthcoming qualifiers.
