The 2018 FIFA World Cup will be the 21st FIFA World Cup, the quadrennial international football tournament contested by the men’s national teams of the member associations of FIFA.
It is scheduled to take place in Russia from 14 June to 15 July after the country was awarded the hosting rights on 2 December 2010.
This will be the first World Cup held in Europe since the 2006 tournament in Germany, the first ever to be held in Eastern Europe and the eleventh time that it has been held in Europe.
All of the stadium venues are in European Russia to keep travel time manageable.
It is expected to be the most expensive football championship in history, budgeted at US$ 11.8-14 billion surpassing the cost of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
