2018 will be the 21st Fifa World Cup, 88 years after the inaugural tournament in Uruguay (1930) and for the first time in Russian Federation.

"I've done a lot in my career, and opening the FIFA World Cup to 80,000 football fans in the stadium and many millions all over the world is a boyhood dream".

Among the foreign leaders who are expected to come to Russian Federation for the World Cup are Abkhaz President Raul Khajimba, Azerbaijani President Ilkham Aliyev, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev, Kyrgyz President Sooronbay Jeenbekov, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Al Hariri, Moldovan President Igor Dodon, Panama's President Juan Carlos Varela, Paraguayan President Mario Abdo Benitez, Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Tajik President Emomalii Rahmon, Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev and South Ossetian President Anatoly Bibilov.

World Cup Organizers announced on June 11 that British singer Robbie Williams will perform at the World Cup opening ceremony on Thursday.

Another date to remember is June 28, when England take on Belgium in their final Group G encounter. However, the spending tally provided by Russia's World Cup organizers falls short of the amount spent by Brazil to host the 2014 World Cup.

Fox Sports has the exclusive broadcasting rights to this year's World Cup, meaning you can catch the matches on Fox, Fox Sports 1, FoxSports.com and via the Fox Sports GO app.

Federation Internationale de Football Association notes that the new Elo method has been used in other sports for a number of years and is even involved in calculating the women's world rankings, with a specific version (SUM) developed especially to take into account FIFA's considerations. That avoids a potentially embarrassing meeting with his successor Gianni Infantino, German news agency DPA reported.
