Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Sochi and Kazan opened the first FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 Fan-ID centres. Fan-ID will become an important part of the security measures during the tournament - it will provide access to matches to the fans and will act as Russian visas for foreigners who have bought tickets to the Confederations Cup matches.

The opening ceremony in Saint Petersburg was attended by Russian Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko.

"In order to deal with security we, relying on our Olympic experience in Sochi, have decided to introduce Fan-ID. It’s a technologically difficult task, which fell on the shoulders of the Communications Ministry. The task to do everything in our power to make this product available and work without a hitch."
