stadiums for the 2018

As before every tournament, problems arose during the construction stage. However, unlike Brazil 2014, the works on the Russian pitches were completed in a timely manner.

Venue construction problems before any World Cup create a headache for the host country. Always. Whether in America, Africa, Europe (or any continent), the inconveniences -in some cases accompanied by complaints of alleged cases of corruption- appear months before any World Cup event.

The World Cup will be played on 12 courts in 11 Russian cities: Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Rostov-on-Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg and Samara.
