MOSCOW, April 15. /TASS/. Delegates of the International Federation of Football Associations are satisfied with the course of the reconstruction of the Luzhniki stadium in Moscow that will host the opening match of the 2018 World Cup, the head of the stadium's construction control department said on Wednesday.
"FIFA officials who outlined technical demands for the construction of World Cup stadiums have already visited us," Murat Akhmatiyev said.
He said that FIFA stadium planning and general project management expert Charles Botta "was very satisfied with what he saw" at the Luzhniki arena.
Luzhniki Arena will also host semi-final and final matches of the World Cup. The matches of the 2018 World Cup will be held between June 14 and July 15 at 12 stadiums located in the 11 mentioned above cities across Russia.
Russia won the bid to host the football competition four years ago in a tight race against a joint challenge from England, Portugal and Spain and the combined bid by Belgium and The Netherlands.
