Forums - Sports Discussion - Who's going to Russia 2018 World Cup?

Yo Kerotan bro, we can go together. Turkey didnt qualify either, but we can represent Playstation Nation!



Around the Network

I've been to Russia once already on a 6th form history trip. Saw all there really was to see. Not interested in going back as its not a country I'd want to visit for a holiday, sporting or otherwise.

Plus I prefer watching the games on the tv, and the russian hooligans are another deterrent.

I'll be bringing my flags to the match that say "playstation global domination" and "ps4 will cannibalise you" xD 

 

Unfortunately I'm going with my woman so no lads allowed! BTW I was at the turkey VS Croatia match at the euros last summer in the Parc de princes when modric scored that epic goal. I was in the corner right beside the Turkish fans and I thought you were awesome. So noisy and passionate.

I would love to go myself, but don't have quite the financial situation for it at the moment.
If I went I would probably try to hit at least two locations to get a wider view of country.

Moscow & St Petersburg both seem to have lots of 'cultural' attractions (and long summer days),
I would probably try to hit up Sochi in the south on the Black Sea with forests/mountains nearby,
and St Petersburg just because it is less of a megacity than Moscow and easier to get around. (?)
Although Moscow Metro stations are supposed to amazing sight, and that is where final game is.
The smaller cities probably are interesting too, with more 'typical' Russian experience than Moscow/StP.
Maybe some of the Russian posters can give tips or opinion on the other cities the WC will happen in.

How much time before/after the WC do you expect to be able to spend?

I'm going to Poland for a few days then getting a bus to kaliningrad. I'll spend a day there before flying to Saint Petersburg. I'm there for a few days where I'll watch Morocco VS Iran. 

 

Then it's a night train to Moscow where I will watch 

Argentina VS Iceland, 

Germany VS Mexico, 

Poland VS Senegal, 

Portugal VS Morocco. 

 

We were then going to travel to sochi but it's too expensive and too far. So instead we are going to Novgorod where we will watch Argentina VS Croatia. 

 

After that it's back to Moscow and then back to Dublin. The night trains are free for fans so they are a nice saving for fans as it's free travel plus 1 less night you need to book accommodation for.

True, but it'd still be nice to be able to at least understand what the discussion is about. This is an annoying trend because it happens in a lot of sports threads.

I'm going to watch all games on my TV. That's enough for me, I don't need the arena atmosphere to enjoy football (although I would love to visit the World Cup Final one day). ^^

Okay, I'm jealous...



Will Russia even be allowed to play?! /s
