BERLIN, December 14. /TASS/. Scepticism of many Western sports officials, especially representing the UK, regarding Russia’s right for hosting the 2018 FIFA World Cup can be explained by the desire to see only negative news about Russia, head of the Russia-2018 organising committee Alexei Sorokin said in an interview with Germany’s Spiegel.
“Russia has received the right to host the tournament in an honest competition. Facts are proving it. The FIFA commission has considered everything related to appointment of Russia, and the final report rejects whatever doubts about it,” he said. “Only bad news from Russia is considered the truth.”
Games of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in 2018 will be organised at 12 stadiums in Russia’s eleven cities: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Yekaterinburg, Samara, Sochi and Rostov-on-Don.
