Fifa has provided the usual positive bulletins about uptake, with just under five million having been requested by the end of the January sales window. Just over half of those have come from within Russia; perhaps depressingly, England features outside the top 10 countries for demand, contributing only 57,957 requests to the total. For context the Netherlands, a much smaller country whose side did not qualify for the tournament, made 71,096 requests. This does not, of course, equate to tickets sold and there are still two phases to go. But with international fans’ appetites clearly an issue there will be much focus on making sure local supporters fill the stadiums. In 2014 the average monthly salary in Mordovia, the republic of which Saransk is capital, was £255; it may make Panama v Tunisia, even at prices starting at £16 for Russian citizens in the group stage, something of an extravagance.

It will, as regular for a World Cup, be good on the night, in spite of the fact that in a few cases things have been left late. Fifa will visit the more commonplace stadiums – in Volgograd, Ekaterinburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Saransk and Kaliningrad – over the most recent 10 days of March to evaluate the scenes’ shifting degrees of availability, in spite of the fact that it concedes the best way to know without a doubt is by perceiving how they get on in test occasions. Samara’s Cosmos Arena is among various stadium activities to have been downsized as expenses and coordinations mounted, and is the greatest straggler; it feels somewhat near the wire that the principal rehearse amusement there isn’t penciled in until 28 April. Access and encompassing foundation are of equivalent concern; when the delightful Luzhniki Stadium, which will have the last, facilitated Russia’s diversion with Argentina in November the match passed splendidly yet there were two-hour lines to achieve a neighborhood prepare station subsequently. The scene will have another split at things when Brazil visit on 23 March. (Source: The Guardian.)
