World Cup 2018

We all remember World Cup 2014. It was in Brasil and was great for all of us. For following and for teams also. Now all tournament will back World Cup 2018 in Russia. Games will start 14th of June. Big organisations like this it always come big plans and sometimes big mistakes. In this case we are talking about FIFA. It is the biggest organisation after olympics. So everything should be perfect. Let’s check about some details about World Cup 2018.

World Cup 2018 Russia

Tickets; Fifa has provided the usual positive bulletins about uptake, with just under five million having been requested by the end of the January sales window. Just over half of those have come from within Russia; perhaps depressingly, England features outside the top 10 countries for demand, contributing only 57,957 requests to the total. For context the Netherlands, a much smaller country whose side did not qualify for the tournament, made 71,096 requests.

The local organising committee is doing its bit to make transport easier by providing fans with free tickets for 728 additional trains between host cities along certain routes and around particular games – although those in a hurry may find faster services available at a cost, particularly on journeys such as Moscow-St Petersburg.

About Venue and Problems

For stadiums, as usual for a World Cup, be all right on the night, although in several cases things have been left late. Fifa will visit the more provincial stadiums – in Volgograd, Ekaterinburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Saransk and Kaliningrad – in the last 10 days of March to assess the venues’ varying degrees of readiness, although it admits the only way to know for sure is by seeing how they get on in test events.

A new generation is growing up in a world where club football holds sway as never before; the news cycle around Russia 2018 has been largely negative and around the corner lie a 2022 edition in Qatar followed by a 48-team format that threatens to test attention spans to the limit. There is, in fairness, a slightly more positive feel around Stanislav Cherchesov’s side after decent showings against Argentina and Spain, along with a kind group stage draw(Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Uruguay); as usual, it would help the feeling around the tournament if they could muster a strong run.
