With less than a year to go before Russia will host one of the biggest sporting events in the planet, the being faced by the said event. For those of you out there who might be thinking about the possible reason why we are sharing this information to you, we tell you that this is because we feel obligated to tell you what we know about Russia and its preparation for the upcoming FIFA World Cup, being fans of the said event. And because we want you to know about things concerning Russia and the event it will host which is FIFA World Cup, we will share to you few of the obstacles that people are wary about before the start of the game.
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. When it comes to Russia, the host for next year’s FIFA World Cup tournament, they are trying to learn a thing or two from the past mistakes done by Brazil and South Africa when they hosted the said sporting event and it seems that the twelve stadiums prepared for the said event are either done or almost completed. 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. Yet, as what many of us know, Russia is not a country that, though they are not secluded, is not used to having large volumes of individuals coming and going. And also, there goes the fact that Russian football has frequently been tainted with controversy regarding racism, something that even Dr Moshe Kantor, a prominent anti-racism campaigner has raised out, and truly, this is quite troubling for fans.
