Representatives of the Saransk volunteer centre for the FIFA 2018 World Cup Russia™ and of the Saransk training Centre for volunteers went on a tour of the Mordovia Arena construction site, which will host the World Cup matches. The offer to visit the stadium was made to the most distinguished of the volunteers.

"Every time I passed the stadium I really wanted to go inside to find out what’s going on. And today I’m here! We saw everything, it was so great, an incredible feeling. Join volunteers, it’s really cool!" one of the volunteers Margarita Alyamkina said.

The visitors took a lot of pictures and made a lot of videos of the construction site. The volunteers have also already voted for their favourite candidate for the title of the official 2018 World Cup mascot and brought pictures of the three candidates – a wolf, a cat and a tiger – to the stadium to make a video urging everyone to make a choice and select a mascot before October 21.
