Russia to offer fun and excitement for tourists during FIFA World Cup

Published on : Wednesday, June 6, 2018

RussiaWorld Tourism and World Sports will commence in Russia from the 14th of this month. 32 national teams will be competing to become the number one in the world in football.

It would be a time for fun and excitement, with Russia putting up its best in every sphere.


The 80,000-seater Luzhniki stadium, one of the two venues in Moscow, is all set to stage the grand opening on June 14 as well as the final on July 15.

Four years after Germany became the world champions at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, the world’s largest sports event has travelled from the samba land to the other side of the globe.

Besides a ticket, football fans would also need a Fan ID from the Russian government.

That means sending personal information such as passport data, address and phone number to the Fan ID website. The information is processed by Russia’s FSB, a successor agency to the Soviet-era KGB.

The Fan ID doubles as a Russian visa and transport pass. It can be delivered by post or collected at special centers in the host cities.

Some tickets would also be available on the FIFA website. Tickets are registered to an individual buyer; hence, buying from a reseller or scalper would not get you into the stadium.

There will be free train services for fans between cities, introducing supporters to Russia’s love of overnight train journeys.

There would be extra direct flights during the tournament between host cities, allowing fans to avoid a layover in Moscow; however, the options could be expensive.
