FIFA plans 'Madiba Moments' at CWC

ESPN's Jeremy Schaap recounts Nelson Mandela's global legacy in sports and society.

ZURICH -- Fans will be asked to applaud Nelson Mandela before kick-off at all eight Club World Cup matches in Morocco this month. 

Mandela waves to the crowd at the 2010 World Cup final closing ceremony.
FIFA will hold "Madiba Moments" during the Club World Cup.

FIFA says spectators will be asked "to stand together in unity to applaud and re-transmit Mandela's message of hope and love across the world."

The first of what world football's governing body is calling "Madiba Moments" will begin when Raja Casablanca plays Auckland City to open the seven-team tournament on Wednesday in Agadir.

The final of the annual tournament -- being played in Africa for the first time -- is on Dec. 21 in Marrakech.

Mandela helped South Africa become the continent's first host of the World Cup in 2010. The anti-apartheid leader and former South African president died last week at 95.
