well i am afraid a "continent" needs a lot of work to do, and no it doesn't count on its own

Blatter talks a lot of non-sense but he did state that Europe will get 2018 and a non-European bid for 2022 so i think Russia needs to aim for 2018.

Europe cannot host it twice so England 2018 and Russia 2022 is not possible.

Arsenal shareholder to help bankroll Russia World Cup bid

May 6 - Billionaire Alisher Usmanov (pictured), the second biggest shareholder at Premier League Arsenal, is to financially help Russia's bid to host the 2018 of 2022 World Cup, it was announced today.

Usmanov, who was born in Uzbekistan, will be using his charitable organisation, "Art and Sport", to back the bid.

They join Russia's other partners, BDO, the world's fifth-large global network of independent auditors, and law firm Yust, who were announced earlier this year.

Art and Sport provides help in organising socially important events in art, culture and sport, and also implements scientific, educational and social projects throughout the entire Russian Federation.

Usmanov said: "Hosting the FIFA World Cup would be extremely important for Russia.

"An event of such magnitude would raise the profile of the country, provide an impact for national football
development, and most importantly attract the youth to sports."

Usmanov's worth is estimated at $7.2 billion (£4.9 billion) thanks to his interests in mining, lumber and investments and Forbes ranks him as the 100th richest man in the world.

The 56-year-old has used that wealth to bankroll Red and White Holdings, which has invested heavily in Arsenal.

The company now owns 26.31 per cent of the former Premier League champions and speculation remains that Usmanov may launch a full bid to takeover the club.

His support for Russia will pit him against England's bid, who are considered to be their main rivals along with joint bids from Holland and Belgium and Spain and Portugal.

Digital Sky Technologies, a company Usmanov owns 32 per cent in, also recently paid $200 million (£136 million) for a 1.96 per cent share in the social networking site Facebook.

Usmanov is also the President of the International Fencing Federation (FIE).

Alexey Sorokin, the chief executive of Russia's bid and the general secretary of the Russian Football Union
(RFU), welcomed the support provided by Usmanov, who claims to be a Dinamo Moscow supporter.

Sorokin said: "By joining our campaign, Art and Sport demonstrates its commitment to Russia’s goal of hosting the FIFA World Cup for the first time in history.

"Alisher Usmanov’s contribution to our work will further strengthen our outreach to all stakeholders in the world of football so as to bring across the merits of the Russian bid."

Through Art and , Usmanov runs programmes and projects with a variety of sports organisations, such as the Russian Fencing Federation, Dynamo Sports Club, and regional sports federations.

The charity is a major provider of resources for social projects and healthcare, helping a large number of facilities such as rehabilitation centres, sports complexes, youth educational and sports establishments and other social infrastructure projects.

First Deputy Minister Shuvalov to Lead Russian Delegation at Bid Book Handover to FIFA in Zurich







A high-level delegation of the Russian Bid Committee for the 2018/2022 FIFA World Cup™ will travel to Zurich for the official ceremony to hand over the bid book to FIFA on 14 May 2010.

The delegation, who will formally present the extensive bidding documentation to FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter and General Secretary Jérôme Valcke, will be headed by Russia’s First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov, who is coordinating the entire bid effort on behalf of the government of the Russian Federation.

He will be accompanied by the Minister of Sports, Tourism and Youth Policy and member of the FIFA Executive Committee, Vitaly Mutko, Russian Football Union President, Sergey Fursenko and Bid CEO Alexey Sorokin. Also part of the delegation will be Dr Viacheslav Koloskov, the Honorary President of Russian Football Union, Special Advisor to the Bid Committee, and formerly a long-standing member of the FIFA Executive Committee.

Bid CEO Alexey Sorokin said: “Following up on the visits of the FIFA President to Moscow and based on the governmental guarantees recently signed by Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, we are proud to now submit our bid book which will explain in detail how Russia plans to organise FIFA’s flagship event should it be awarded the honour and privilege of being selected as hosts. We hope that our documentation will not only meet but also exceed FIFA’s requirements as befits the status of the FIFA World Cup™.”

The actual bid book consists of three volumes with a total of 1,100 pages. Every set has a weight of almost 7 kilograms.

The documentation provides a comprehensive overview of Russia as a potential host country for the FIFA World Cup™ and includes a detailed Hosting Concept, extensive information on the planned 13 Host Cities and 16 stadiums along with media installations, team base camps and training sites, transportation, hotel accommodation, information technology and communications, safety and security as well as health and medical services.

Also included in the documentation are all relevant data regarding finances and insurance, legacy and football programmes based on and around the FIFA World Cup™, environmental protection plans and an array of proposals for an extensive programme of competition-related events.

On the eve of the handover ceremony in Zurich, the Russian Bid Committee will hold a media briefing regarding the bid book in Moscow on Thursday, 13 May 2010. The briefing, which will also be led by First Deputy Prime Minister Shuvalov will take place at RIA NOVOSTI News and Information Agency office at 4 Zubovsky Bulvar and start at 10.30 am Moscow time.

The next milestone for the bid is the inspection visit, when a delegation of FIFA experts will visit Russia from 16 to 19 August. FIFA will designate the host nations for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup tournaments at a special meeting of the Executive Committee on 2 December 2010.

1) Reconstruction of Luzhniki stadium
2) New Spartak stadium
3) Reconstruction of Dynamo stadium
4) New stadium in Moscow region, not far from Moscow Ring Road, which will be instead of Podolsk stadium (which is out of the bid) and is a part of Moscow region Bid.

CSKA stadium will not in Bid but will be built.

I wouldn't be surprised if they lowered the field and extended the lower stands like they're doing in Kiev to provide a better view for lower seats. And of course change out the plastic carpet for some real grass, at least for the tournament.

Vladimir Putin signed special guarantees for FIFA: among all financial and organising elements, it included the point where fans with tickets will travel on railroads between the cities absolutely for free; + visa-free regime (if it won't be already in 2018).

Russia World Cup bid makes case to CONCACAF

Russia’s World Cup team have presented their case to host the 2018 or 2022 World Cup to members of CONCACAF’s Executive Committee.

The presentations, led by bid CEO Alexey Sorokin, took place prior to last Friday’s CONCACAF Executive Committee meeting in New York. Sorokin was joined by the newly elected president of the Russian Football Union, Sergey Fursenko.

The previous night the delegation entertained FIFA Ex-co member Chuck Blazer at the Michelin starred L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon at the Four Season's Hotel – a choice Blazer described as “simply superb".

Russia says lack of experience, stadiums helps World Cup bid

Russia's relative lack of modern stadiums is an advantage in its bid to host the FIFA World Cup as the tournament would enhance football infrastructure in the country, First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov said on Thursday.

Russia is competing with England, Australia, the United States, Spain and Portugal and Belgium and the Netherlands to host the World Cup in 2018 or 2022. Japan, South Korea and Qatar are bidding just for the second tournament.

"They already have stadiums, the experience of hosting big competitions," Shuvalov said at a news conference, adding that Russia would have to create the sports infrastructure from the scratch.

Shuvalov said that although Russia's lack of experience is widely considered a disadvantage, he saw it as the positive sign.

"Given the rights to host the World Cup, Russia would be able to do more than anyone else," the first deputy prime minister said. He said the tournament would also have a greater role expanding the sport's popularity in Russia than elsewhere.

Such rationale played a role in UEFA awarding Euro 2012 to Poland and Ukraine, but the latter's struggles to build the infrastructure, such as stadiums, transport facilities and hotel capacity, have led to doubts about its ability to host the tournament.

Russia could also be hurt by its failure to qualify for this summer's World Cup in South Africa. Of the other bidders, the only absentees this summer are Belgium, which hopes to reprise its co-hosting of Euro 2000 with the Netherlands, and Qatar.

FIFA will appoint hosts for 2018 and 2022 World Cups on December 2. The 2018 tournament is expected to be given to a European bidder, meaning the 2022 event would be held on a different continent.

Russia’s bid for 2018-2022 World Cups to be submitted

Russian sports officials have prepared the country's bid to host either the 2018 or 2022 football World Cup. It will be presented to the football governing body FIFA in Zurich on Friday, May 14.

The three volume-strong bid – that weighs around seven kilograms altogether that took a year to make – has 20 chapters extensively describing every aspect of Russia’s intention to host a World Cup.

The whole country is divided into four football clusters including 13 cities, where the games of the World Cup are to be played. The Northern cluster includes Kaliningrad and St. Petersburg; the Central cluster – Moscow with Moscow region; the Volga cluster – Yaroslavl, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Kazan, Saransk, Volgograd; the Southern cluster: Rostov-on-Don, Krasnodar, Sochi; and Ekaterinburg.

First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov sees the possible world cup as a new and massive project.

“Everything will be done from scratch,” Shuvalov said, adding, “Many believe that is a minus, but we think the opposite – it is an advantage, as we will create a basis for football for the future. If Russia hosts the championship, it will, more than any other country, help the development of international football. It would mean an unprecedented involvement of a large number of people from different ethnic backgrounds in preparation for this major event.”

Russia’s Sports, Tourism and Youth Policy Minister Vitaly Mutko is convinced that head of FIFA Joseph Blatter is supportive of Russia in this case.

“As for the position of FIFA president – well, he did visit our country. He held meetings with the Russian president and prime minister, and basically he is inspired by the serious political support and the guarantees we provide regarding organizational issues. On the whole, the position of FIFA’s president is to promote international football through this championship. Therefore, we consider him an ally in our bid,” Mutko said.

Apart from Russia, countries like England, Qatar, South Korea, Australia, Spain united with Portugal and Belgium with Netherlands hope to land the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

A World Cup in Russia would benefit football more than anywhere else

May 13 - Russia have tried to put a positive spin on their lack of modern football stadiums and facilities by claiming that awarding them the 2018 World Cup would help the development of the sport in the world's biggest country, First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov claimed today.

Russia is competing with England, Australia, the United States, Spain and Portugal and Belgium and the Netherlands to host the World Cup in 2018 or 2022.

Japan, South Korea and Qatar are bidding just for the second tournament.

"They already have stadiums, the experience of hosting big competitions," Shuvalov said at a news conference in Moscow today ahead of leaving for Zurich where they tomorrow will hand in their bid book to FIFA President Sepp Blatter.

"Given the rights to host the World Cup, Russia would be able to do more than anyone else.

“Everything will be done from scratch.

"Many believe that is a minus, but we think the opposite - it is an advantage, as we will create a basis for football for the future."

The World Cup host should have 11 to 12 stadiums capable of housing 40,000 people and one capable of housing 80,000.

Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium, which hosted the 1980 Olympics and the venue for Manchester United's victory over Chelsea in the Champions League final in 2008, is the closest to the requirement with a current capacity of 78,000.

Russia intends to build several stadiums to meet the requirements.

Five World Cup-level stadiums are to be ready by 2013 - two in Moscow and one apiece in St. Petersburg, Kazan and Sochi.

Shuvalov also claimed that by awarding the tournament to Russia it would help the popularity of the sport.

"If Russia hosts the championship, it will, more than any other country, help the development of international football," he said.

"It would mean an unprecedented involvement of a large number of people from different ethnic backgrounds in preparation for this major event."

Alexey Sorokin, the chief executive of Russia's bid, refused to put a figure on how much investment would be needed to build the stadiums and infrastructure required if the country was awarded the World Cup.

"Before the bid is submitted to FIFA, we cannot announce the sum," he said.

"There are separate chapters dedicated to the issue in the bid - one for 2018, another for 2022.

"This is a careful and balanced budget, calculated taking many factors into account."

But Shuvalov promised that the Government would underwrite the costs of hosting the event.

"The state guarantees, which are set out in the bid, were obtained only after a detailed discussion of all the financial aspects of the application.

"The budget was drafted with the participation of the Ministry of Economic Development and the Ministry of Finance."

Russia's bid has been boosted by Blatter's recent comments that a World Cup there would be "remarkable".

Vitaly Mutko, Russia's Sports Minister and a member of the FIFA Executive Committee, claimed that this could be important, especially as he has also held several meetings with Dmitry Medvedev and Vladimir Putin, the President and Prime Minister respectively.

"As for the position of FIFA President - well, he did visit our country.

"He held meetings with the Russian President and Prime Minister, and basically he is inspired by the serious political support and the guarantees we provide regarding organisational issues.

"On the whole, the position of FIFA's President is to promote international football through this championship.

"Therefore, we consider him an ally in our bid."

Russia’s bid for 2018-2022 World Cups submitted

The Russian delegation, headed by First Deputy Premier Minister Igor Shuvalov, has passed the country’s bid to host the World Cup in either 2018 or 2022 over to FIFA president Joseph Blatter in Zurich.

“We are happy to present you with the bid book for the World Cup 2018 and 2022. This book not only meets all the requirements of FIFA, but represents the future of Russia. Our country fully shares the head of FIFA’s approach, according to which the tournament should facilitate the development of the state,” RIA-Novosti news agency cited Igor Shuvalovn as saying.

Next on the agenda for Russia is a visit from the FIFA evaluating committee, scheduled for August 16–20, 2010. The officials from football’s governing body are planning to visit Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan and Nizhny Novgorod.

The final decision on the tournament’s host is to be announced on December 2 this year.

The bid book’s presentation in Russia took place a day before, on Thursday.

The three volume-strong bid – that weighs around seven kilograms altogether that took a year to make – has 20 chapters extensively describing every aspect of Russia’s intention to host a World Cup.

The whole country is divided into four football clusters including 13 cities, where the games of the World Cup are to be played.
