The 2018 FIFA World Cup is more than a year away, set for June 14 to July 15, but it’s never too early to start talking about the greatest international football competition.

The main venue for the Cup will be Luzhniki Stadium in St. Petersburg, and will be used for the Opening Match of Russia v New Zealand, a semi-final, and final. Like the last World Cup in Brazil, those living in the host country will be able to purchase tickets through a separate, domestic-only category 4. Tickets will only be available after the 2017 Confederations Cup. In USD, the final will be the cheapest at $455 in Category 3 tickets. If planning ahead to the summer of 2018, remember that a tourist visa necessary to travel to Russia, and that visa must be registered with the Federal Migration Service if planning to stay over a week.

To be held in Russia, the Cup has received over 150,000 applications for volunteers, the highest number in the history of the competition. A third of the applications come from abroad, and most volunteers expressed their interest in volunteering at the most populous cities Moscow and St. Petersburg. The World Cup only requires 15,000 volunteers to run smoothly.

Although FIFA recently announced it was expanding the competition from 32 to 48 teams, this change will only take effect in 2026, meaning the 2018 Cup will have no change in the usual teams that compete.
