Retired Manchester United winger، Ryan Giggs، is due to visit Cairo in April، accompanied by the Champions League Cup، within the framework of a tour carried out by the organizers of the tournament around the world.
The organizers chose Egypt only in the Middle East and Africa for its long history.
It is scheduled for Giggs’ visit to last for two days during which he will visit a number of tourist attractions in the country.
Last month، FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi arrived in Egypt for a Tour and Cure Campaign visit.
Tourism officials expect an increase in the number of tourists visiting Egypt in the coming period، as European countries start to lift the flights ban to Sinai.
A week ago، Barcelona striker Lionel Messi travelled to Egypt as the face of an initiative to promote the North African country as a medical tourism destination for hepatitis C patients.
European countries and the US have imposed a flights ban to Sinai، after a Russian civilian plane crashed in Sinai، killing all passengers and the flight crew members، in October 2015.
The total number of tourists who visited Egypt reached 640179 tourists in February 2016، according to Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS).
