Russian World Cup 2018 construction projects gaining pace

In September 2012 the eleven host cities that will organise the 2018 FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia were announced. The sixty-four matches will be staged at twelve venues. Among the host cities are: Moscow, being the only city with two stadiums selected, Saint Petersburg, Kaliningrad, Nizhny Novgorod, Kazan, Samara, Saransk, Volgograd, Rostov-on-Don and Yekaterinburg. Two cities − Krasnodar and Yaroslavl − were dropped from the initial list.
Recent weeks have seen visible progress in the preparation of many World Cup construction projects, bringing the planned investments even closer to realisation. In autumn 2012 tenders for design works were announced for stadiums in Kaliningrad, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Volgograd and Yekaterinburg. In Kaliningrad the tender was announced for the second time due to increased construction costs. The stadium will rely on a design concept prepared by the Willmotte company. The estimated cost of the design works is RUB 910m ($29.4m). In Volgograd the tender results will be announced by the end of November and the cost of construction will amount to approx. RUB 16bn ($516m).
