Russia ready to inspire

Ready to host!



A country of nearly endless and beautiful cultural perspectives, spanning nine time zones and home to over 180 nationalities. A nation of progress and pride, establishing a new, vibrant, modern Russia. A society of sport fans, where no single sport is more universally revered and passionately pursued than football. People of uncompromising hospitality, ready to open their hearts and homes to friends, family and visitors alike. People universally dedicated to their bid — from their government, to their economy, to their people. That’s Russia ladies and gentlemen and they will host the 2018 FIFA World Cup™.


I am a football player. I just love this game, which has given me so much ever since I first kicked a ball. I cannot remember the exact moment or place but I do feel that it has determined the course of my life (…) I am convinced that especially for the fans, a World Cup in Russia would be a tremendous experience. It is fascinating how my foreign friends react when they come and visit me in Russia. They are absolutely taken aback by the atmosphere in Moscow and other cities, the life in the streets, the Russian hospitality, by the cultural heritage.

Russia is a world in one country: a land of incomparable natural diversity, home to 143 million people, representing 180 different nationalities. Russia is a continent bordered by 18 neighbouring countries: Andrey Arshavin. Russia’s national team captain.
