A Russian Football World Cup: What can fans expect?
Winston Churchill once described Russia as "a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma" so we can safely say the first Football World Cup to be held in Eastern Europe will be full of surprises. Certainly, Russia has shown in recent years that they are willing to back their sporting ambitions even at huge expense as the 2014 Winter Games (the most expensive in history) showcased Russian enthusiasm for competitive sport to the world. So, without doubt, those who possess Football World Cup 2018 tickets will witness quite a spectacle.
Fans also have the opportunity to attend more than one game and really soak up the atmosphere at this tournament. Those fortunate enough to have Football World Cup tickets will also be allowed to travel for free on Russian railways - all you need to do is show your ticket! Fans will also be treated to the latest stadia and infrastructure to grace football. With six completely new stadiums and two that have been considerably upgraded, you can watch your favourite sport in the best facilities football has to offer.
Football World Cup 2018: Russia's Key Venues
Despite Russia's documented problems in athletics, organisers are looking to transform the image of a country sometimes previously seen as one of ugly tower blocks to a forward-thinking nation that embraces everything that is embodied in the beautiful game. And the beautiful game will be heading to some beautiful venues. In Saint Petersburg, fans can watch football in Russia's "Window to the West"; a beautiful city once home to the famous Tzars of Russia. Either side of the Neva river fans will find spectacular palaces and cathedrals draped in history. Or Football World Cup tickets could take supporters south to Sochi. The venue for the said 2014 Winter Games may appear somewhat confusing at first because it is essentially a tropical paradise. "The Russian Riviera" has both the mountain backdrop and miles of beaches for fans to relax before and after their big football world cup matches.
Football World Cup 2018 ticket holders may also want to end up in Russia's capital city Moscow. Fans can walk through the famous Red Square and marvel at St Basil's Cathedral and the Kremlin. The colourful domes set around the red walls of power is so often the image of Russia itself. The famous Luzhniki Stadium, which is expected to host the opening game and the final, was also the venue for the opening ceremony for 1980 Summer Games and the epic 2008 Champions League Final.
