Russia will hold a first-class World Cup, which can be judged by the organization level of the Olympics in Sochi three years ago. This opinion was expressed by the President of the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF), a member of the FIFA Council Victor Montagliani.

"Not so long ago, I talked to Vitaly Mutko on the World Championship preparations, the stadiums are being built on time, there are also no delays in the rest of the infrastructure works, so I do not have any worries and doubts in this regard.

Every time Russia holds a major competition, everything is done at the highest level - to take at least the Olympics in Sochi, it was scrumptious. I have no doubt that the 2018 World Cup will be organized just as splendidly," Montalnani said.

2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ matches will be held from June 14 to July 15 at 12 stadiums in 11 Russian cities: Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Ekaterinburg, Samara, Sochi and Rostov- On-Don.
