Russia and FIFA on Saturday unveiled the 11 cities from the Baltic to the Urals that will host the 2018 World Cup in the most ambitious project the country has organised since the fall of the USSR.

The World Cup will be played in Moscow, former imperial capital Saint Petersburg, 2014 Winter Olympics host Sochi, Kazan on the Volga, Yekaterinburg in the Urals and six other cities largely unknown to foreigners until now.

---

Unlike the Winter Olympics, the World Cup will require the government to spend billions of dollars developing sports, tourist and transport infrastructure in hitherto under-developed areas across the country.

The most westerly host city is the Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad, the former German East Prussia that borders the European Union, while the most easterly is the Urals city of Yekaterinburg, three time zones and 2,500 kilometres away.

---

He lavished praise on the professionalism of the organising committee, saying that Russia's preparations were ahead of schedule. "Thank you, Russia," he said.

The full list of host cities is: Moscow, Kaliningrad, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Saint Petersburg, Samara, Sochi, Rostov-on-Don, Saransk, Volgograd, Yekaterinburg.

---
The city of Saransk from the central region of Mordovia is possibly the most obscure host city choice and will need to embark on massive infrastructure development in order to receive the influx of foreign visitors.

Saint Petersburg and Moscow will host a semi-final apiece while Moscow's Luzhniki stadium -- set to be be boosted to a capacity of almost 90,000 -- will host the final. A completely new Moscow stadium -- Spartak -- will also host matches.

All these dives hosting Eurobasket, world cup, world hockey championship.... how many sluts from Moscow slept with the bosses of these sports. One thing is for sure. None of these dives will ever host an F1 grandprix.

sooooooooo many things can happen from now to 2018 that can change the equation. Things are not quite going "cream and Peaches" inside Russia.

Not just Russia, but the whole World is likely to undergo major political, economic and environmental changes in the next few years. But let's hope that doesn't affect footie.

Footie is the most celebrated sport in the World. Hosting a footie tournament is for many like having a piece of heaven in your native land.

Football is popular in third world. Limeys only like it because they suck at everything else. My bet is that if you ask the krauts, they love Schumacher more than any ball kicker.

Good observation. Unlike hockey.
No 3d world country play hockey.
This is a game of the most civilised countries.
Besides, this is more manlike game than football.

Footie is the most loved sport in the World. Hockey is something I used to play in a short skirt at school. Like netball it's hardly a boy's sport.

Loved in third world. Yes. Broads can play ball but not drive, get tackled or take a punch.

girls play hockey and netball in little skirts at school. At our school we also played lacrosse. Now that is a tough sport if you get hit in the boob with a ball.
