FIFA: Eleven 2018 World Cup host cities lack adequate visitor accomodations
Djordjadze said Moscow, Sochi, St. Petersburg and Kazan are the only cities that meet the Cup's visitor accommodation requirements, suggesting that other areas such as Yekaterinburg, Kaliningrad, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Vogograd, Rostov-on-Don and Saransk develop "creative solutions" for airports ill-equipped to handle the influx of foreign and domestic spectators, RIA NOVOSTI reports.
Russia's sports ministry said in order to organize the month-long 2018 World Cup, which will be held from June to July, the ministry will need $44 billion. Individual regions have asked for federal funds to improve antiquated roads and transportation hubs and to build stadiums.
In December, FIFA president Sepp Blatter stated that preparations have, so far, exceeded his expectations, according to RIA NOVOSTI.
