Good luck EnglandHope your over the thunderclapIceland :)
Best scenario? save the plane fare and don't bother turning up would be my advice! yawn!
Warning to all football fans of ethnic minority background - do not go. I went to Russia on a business trip and even at the airport the prejudice I was subjected to was shocking. The country has a serious issue with racism.
The fans are just a load of racist hooligans. Not sure about the Russian ones though.
58. Save yourself a fortune and a lot of wasted time and don't bother watching it at all!
If ever there was a case of an article that make World Cup draw speculation pointless it's this. We could get get the shortest journeys with the toughest teams or the longest and the easiest or anything inbetween - what will be will be. Some look for a positive outcome while others seemingly wanting the players shot at dawn before a ball is kicked - let's just enjoy it while it lasts
Sleeper trains are absolutely FREE!! If you have a ticket for any game you can go for free to/from that game from any other host city, even if it’s 3000km away! Not 3rd class either, brand new Kupe 4 berth compartments. Just need your ticket no. and FAN ID. The special trains are just for World Cup ticket holders. Russia wants this tournament to be a success, give them a chance!
Just watch tv.save a fortune,no nightmare travelling and you wont get your head kicked in.
I wonder if the newlyweds discount applies to Civil Partnerships?!
@54 The difference with the Euros was that the Russian fans weren't at home.Putin doesn't want trouble from their hooligans on his own doorstep. I think you'll find the punishments for Russian hooligans will be a lot harsher than for visitors.I have a sneaky suspicion that this World Cup will actually pass by without any real trouble.
Really handy for the BBC to give a nice clear example of what a 14,000km round trip looks like. London to Angola? Really? Yeah, because we all know what that journey's like. C'mon, we're not all Kate Adie.
Remember the Euros? Russian military style hooligans which hunted down English fans and brain damaged them. Even Russian MP's said they were proud of them. Good luck going to Russia and your own risk.
Worked in Moscow for 9 months. Awesome place, full of culture; locals for the most part are well educated and friendly, plenty of good bars, restaurants and clubs. Of course, not the place to go if you're looking for a drunken brawl with the local "ultras" but other than that, highly recommended.
Ingurland fans should all get a 7 day railcard. No point in getting one for any longer.
49 -I can see that geography isn't one of your strong subjects. But more importantEngland better not hope they draw IRAN from the the third pot. Many of the "experts" including those of the BBC have no idea how good Iran are, OK they have beaten Chile recently Sanchez , Vidal and all who didn't qualify.But just look at Iran's goals against Montenegro who beat Denmark in Copenhagen.
