Only less than a year more to go before Russia hosts one of the biggest sporting events ever played in the planet which is the FIFA World Cup, this is now the perfect time for us to discuss some of the challenges that may come the way of every team who will face Russia in the said tournament. If you are wondering why we are saying this to you, well, that is due to the fact that Russia is known for being a country that is not far away from all sorts of big news and stories. In order for you to be updated when it comes to the latest happenings regarding the preparations for FIFA World Cup 2018, we present to you this article containing several of the obstacles people are afraid of before the very first kick off.
For those of you out there who love the game of football, for sure, you already know about the situation regarding the two World Cups in the past which were hosted by South Africa and Brazil wherein they are marred by controversy due to the building of the stadiums and how there are plans of using these stadiums right after the event was finished. On the side for Russia, which will be hosting the FIFA World Cup next year, they seem to be trying to learn from the mistakes of the past which were done by its previous hosts, and news has it that the twelve stadiums that we built or renovated just to suit the standard and the requirement of the sporting event are now completed or almost done. But then again, the efforts of Russia to make the sporting event a successful one are clouded by questions regarding the conditions faced by the workers contracted for the preparation.
Russia is just one of the countries across the globe that has so many negative publicity in the western media outlet and this kind of thing may trigger the government to make a move to make sure that the fans will have the best possible experience they can have. Today, every single person who is involve in the preparation and the event itself, like the paramedics, the police and even the front-line volunteers, are given English lessons so that they can communicate well with the fans plus, they also offer free travel from one stadium to another to those who are ticket holders. However, as we all know, Russia is one of the countries around the world that is not used to having tons of people coming and going all at once. In addition to that, Russian football has oftentimes been the center of controversy for racism and this is something that even a prominent anti-racism campaigner like Dr Moshe Kantor have spoken out against.
