in #russia3 years ago

The 21st edition of the football World Cup begins in Russia on June 14. After the World Cup of football, after eight years to return to Europe, the organizers' enthusiasm is a little more noticeable. Russia's World Cup organizer committee has made several new stadiums in front of the World Cup. Especially the Russian football infrastructure has radically changed through this. The upcoming stadiums in the upcoming tournament will now be a reflection of Russia's future football.


Although new installations were seen, some of the major home grooms in Russia were not considered as venues for the World Cup. Of these, CSKA Veebie Arena in Moscow (which was launched in 2016), Vietbi Arena of Dynamo Moscow (founded this year) has been neglected.

Instead, the center of the 12 selected stadiums is in Moscow's Luzinci Stadium, where this year's final match will be held. At least four matches of the group stage will be held in each of the squads. Take a look at the 12 stadiums:
