FIFA to conduct first stadium inspections in Russia
FIFA representatives will be joined by members of the Russian 2018 Local Organizing Committee (LOC) and experts from Arena-2018 to inspect all elements of the stadium design and construction including security, transport, logistics, hospitality, broadcasting, media operations, medical capabilities, marketing and ticketing operations. Over the course of eight days, the group of 40 inspectors will visit stadiums in St. Petersburg, Kazan, Sochi and Moscow and review construction plans for the remaining stadiums.
"Running the first joint inspection of the 2018 FIFA World Cup stadiums is a crucial milestone marking the transition from the design phase to the operational stage of preparations for the tournament," Russian 2018 LOC CEO Alexey Sorokin said. "The primary goal for inspection at this stage is to receive first-hand information on how design and construction is going for the 2018 FIFA World Cup stadiums. That will enable the FIFA, LOC and Arena-2018 experts to report back to representatives of the host cities with their own comments on how to optimize the work going on so as to meet all FIFA requirements."
