MOSCOW, November 22. /TASS/. The rights to telecast 2018 World Football Cup matches Russia will host in less than two years’ time are currently estimated at $100 million, Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister, Russian Football Union President Vitaly Mutko told the media on Tuesday.
"FIFA will hold a bidding contest for the rights to telecast football cup matches. Russia has not acquired them yet. Initially the price was set at $32 million. The current one stands at $100 million. The package also includes the Confederations Cup matches and a number of products. In our opinion the price is overcharged. We will be holding more discussions with FIFA in Kazan (at the Confederations Cup lots drawing ceremony). Some hope for government funding, but it is to be a free market economy affair. We are to seek a compromise. Intensive work is on," Mutko said.
World Football Cup matches will be held on June 14 - July 15 at 12 stadiums in eleven Russian cities: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan, Nizhni Novgorod, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Yekaterinburg, Samara, Sochi and Rostov-on-Don.
