ST PETERSBURG, March 18. /TASS/. Several Russian cities may fail to prepare hotel infrastructure for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Lana Kluyeva, a representative of the Match Accommodation agency, said on Friday.
"A number of cities have some problems with the accommodation," she said, adding that these cities are Kaliningrad, Rostov, Samara and Saransk.
Vadim Prasov, deputy head of the Russian Association of Caterers and Hoteliers, said the complications can be linked to investments.
"Some investors give up their plans or fail to fulfill obligations," he said.
The matches of the 2018 World Cup will be held between June 14 and July 15 at 12 stadiums located in the 11 cities across Russia. Two of the stadiums are located in the Russian capital.
