FIFA World Cup 2018 Stadiums: Your Guide To The Venues In Russia

FIFA World Cup 2018 Stadiums: The 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia is scheduled to be held in 11 cities, making use of 12 venues (stadiums). Russia is eager to impress and it’s making a monumental effort to do so. Fans at this epic event will be treated to some of the newest and most modern stadiums anywhere. Six of the 12 venues are being built specifically for the World Cup, with the remaining six being rebuilt or renovated to improve the fan experience. There’s no doubt these venues will be a highlight of the tournament.

There are so many new builds, in fact, that the home grounds of some of Russia’s biggest clubs, such as CSKA Moscow’s VEB Arena (opened in 2016) and Dynamo Moscow’s VTB Arena (due to open later this year), have not been included in the bid.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup will be the 21nd FIFA World Cup, an international association football tournament that is scheduled to take place in 2018 in Russia. Russia announced its purpose to bid for the FIFA World Cup in early 2009, and submitted its request to FIFA .Russia’s Prime Minister and former President Vladimir Putin has taken a intense interest in the bid and has gone so far as ordering Vitaly Mutko, the Minister of Sports, to “prepare a bid for Russia to hold the 2018 World Cup”. According to a information earlier submitted by Vitaly Mutko, who also served that time as President of the Russian Football Union (RFU), the country is ready to expend more then $10 billion on the tournament. The bid board also includes RFU CEO Alexey Sorokin and Alexander Djordjadze as the Director of Bid Planning and Operations. In October 2010, Russia formally pulled out of the race to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup. On December 2, 2010 Russia has been chosen as the host country for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
