Dear Forumers

For the 43rd time, accusations of racism, and racist remarks will treated equally and both will be considered seriously.

Please report racist remarks via PM to moderators or by reporting posts or using other means.

We will no longer tolerate accusations of racism when you've run out of things to say, and can no longer debate an issue.

This is the FINAL warning.

“Legacy after World Cup in Russia will be immense” – 2018 World Cup bid chief (Video)



FIFA is to announce in December, who will host the 2018 football World Cup. Aleksey Sorokin, the CEO of Russia's bid for the tournament, spoke with RT about the campaign to land the big event.

Aleksey Sorokin said that legacy is the aspect that is very important for FIFA and there Russia has a lot to offer.

“We will influence not only the football development in this country but certainly in the whole region where Russia is situated, and export it to all our neighbors,” he said.

Sorokin said Russia is absolutely guaranteed to be immune from the so-called “white elephants”.

“We have been carefully choosing all the host cities,” he said. “All of them have either a Premier League club or the First Division clubs. There is a major club or two playing in each host city. We think with the state of the art infrastructure, the attendance levels will only grow.”

Sorokin also said that Russia’s vast territory will not be a problem for football fans, due to careful planning by the organizers.

The chief of Russia’s 2018 World Cup bid concluded that the country has a very good chance, and they are very confident of victory – certainly, without being overconfident.

Supporters will travel free on public transport if Russia wins 2018 vote, promises sports minister

England's bidding rival pledges three-point action plan to win over doubters...

EXCLUSIVE
By Wayne Veysey in Moscow

The Russia sports minister has promised that supporters will be able to travel free of charge around the country if Russia wins the bid to host the 2018 World Cup.

Vitaly Mutko also declared that the construction of 14 new stadiums has been guaranteed by the government and reiterated Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s recent pledge that the requirement for visitors to have a visa will be waived during the tournament.

The three-point action plan was outlined by Mutko as England’s closest rival to host the 2018 tournament outlined their commitment towards the game’s showpiece event.

The biggest criticism of Russia’s ambitious bid is that it exists largely on paper, with the stadium, transport, utilities and accommodation lagging behind rival bidders such as England and Spain/Portugal.

Speaking at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium, Mutko said: “The Russian government and the Russian president have given guarantees that our obligations will be observed if we host the World Cup. I can offer three additional guarantees.

“Number one: stadium construction is guaranteed by the Russian government. Number two: there will be visa free travel for visitors in Russia, just as there was in the 2008 Champions League final. Number three: I can also guarantee there will be free travel by train between the bidding cities for ticket holders.”

Russia will allow all supporters to travel free on public transport, which also includes bus and metro, either in or between its 13 host cities.

Visitors from nearly all countries normally require a visa to travel to Russia, which must be applied for in advance. The pledge to waive visa requirements follows the country’s policy two years ago, when Manchester United and Chelsea fans arriving for the Champions League final in Moscow showed their match tickets at passport control rather than a visa.

“Russia has never broken its promises in its history,” said Mutko. “We would like to show in 2018 that Russia is an open, innovative country.”

Russia has also vowed to build 14 of the 16 venues from scratch, although Mutko said that six of the stadiums will be built regardless of whether the country wins the 2018 vote in Zurich in December.

“Whether or not we get the World Cup, we are going to develop our infrastructure everywhere,” he explained. “I’d like to point out that this is not just a project for hosting the World Cup.”

I'm not in a position to question the USSR's 'readiness', as in being prepared to host the event, beating any deadline.

I've conveniently highlighted the bleeding obvious excerpts to handsomely facilitate any anticipated and appreciated response.
This is one of the Bubnov's quotes:
Quote:
In general, domestic football is now on the verge of collapse. "

"We must bring order in Russian football, because his death is getting closer and closer.
He also "predicted" resignation of Advocaat after Russia-Slovakia game. So what? Kind of a very pessimistic man, I guess.
He made this "Russia is not ready to host the 2018 World Cup" statement staying on Dynamo stadium. But, for sure, he didn't know that start of the construction will be only in summer 2011.
Having corruption is not a secret, especially when Medvedev announced a huge struggle against corrupted officials, who can't change their behaviour after chaotic 1990s. Don't worry. People are a lot more critical in Russia than you even can imagine. Sometimes they are over-critical and bitching themselves without normal reason. This is for those who think that "they can only bow to the great leader", and other fairytales.

What can be a reaction? Just like any reaction on "prediction".

Listen, Bubnov is only one of the journalists and football analysts. He, of course, have right on own opinion. If you can read Russian subforum, you can find similar skeptical positions among some Russians. It's named pluralism and freedom of discussion.

USSR died 19 years ago. I think that 7 years is normal term. For example, construction of Olympic objects in Sochi for WOG2014 was started since 2007. Kazan will be host Summer Universiade in 2013. Moscow and St. Petersburg have developed infrastructure.

He said about corruption. I think that every Russian schoolboy heard about it. However, it does not prevent to build new sport stadiums.

The speculation suggests that it wasn't for "no reason", but linked to his investigations into a controversial road project. Another journalist reporting the same issue was also attacked.

While it might suggest that reporting on certain stories can be much more dangerous than the same activities in the west, it doesn't mean that journalists going to cover the world cup will have anything to worry about.

Does anybody in Britain heard about this legend before the publishing of this article?

Luzhniki was reconstructed within two years in 1995-1997 when financial situation in Russia was much worse than today. As result stadium got 5-stars from UEFA. Dynamo is smaller stadium than Luzhniki.

Luzhniki stadium (78360) was reconstructed within 2 years (1995-1997).

The Luzhniki Stadium was chosen by UEFA to host the 2008 UEFA Champions League Final won by Manchester United who beat Chelsea in the first all English Champions League Final on May 21. Prior to the match some skeptics questioned the state of the pitch and also the ability of Russian authorities to keep order amongst the traveling British fans, however the match passed incident free and a British Embassy in Moscow spokesman said, "The security and logistical arrangements put in place by the Russian authorities have been first-rate, as has been their cooperation with their visiting counterparts from the UK."

Lokomotiv stadium (28800 seats) was fully destroyed and rebuilt again within 2 years (2000-2002):


Therefore, despite of opinion of Western propaganda, 7 years is more than need for construction of the new stadiums.

Do not worry, the owner of the Dinamo is one of the largest Russian bank VTB. They plan to invest in the construction of the stadium and the whole complex in Petrovsky Park, about 1.5 billion euros until 2016.
