The 2018 FIFA World Cup is scheduled to take place in Russia from 14 June to 15 July. It will be the 21st Fifa World Cup, after Russia was awarded the hosting rights on 2 December 2010.

All of the stadiums are in European Russia, to keep travel time manageable for the teams in the huge country. Three of these stadiums were renovated and others would be newly constructed. The Luzhniki Stadium located in Moscow and The Saint Petersburgs are the two largest stadiums in Russia and those are going to be used the most, with 7 matches each.
