Prime Pharma Inc., the advertizing partner for Messi's visit to Egypt, had announced last week that the legendary player would postpone his visit due to reasons relating to the team's loss in its recent match against Paris St. Germain FC.
Barcelona was heavily defeated 4-0 by Paris St. Germain last Tuesday, in Europe's Champions League.
Messi's visit will start with a tour at Giza Pyramids followed by a large ceremony to launch the medical campaign, Prima Pharma Inc. said in a statement.
The campaign's ad which was shot in Spain to call on Hepatitis C patients to receive treatment in Egypt will be displayed for the first time, the Prima Pharma added.
Messi was keen to thank Egyptians, whom he trusts understood the reasons behind the postponement of his visit, a media source at the pharmaceutical company said. The source added that the postponement of the visit, in the end, served as a further propaganda for the visit.
The Barcelona FC superstar Messi is expected in Cairo on Tuesday afternoon. Tight security measures have been imposed during Messi's visit, a source at the Interior Ministry said.
Security guards from the Interior Ministry in addition to National Security Agency and Public Security Sector officers will accompany Messi throughout his visit, the source added.
