    Russia will host the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and many of the stadiums in the 13 host cities are being built from scratch.

    Over the next four years $4bn will be spent for sports, with a further $10bn on infrastructure.

    The World Cup is expected to be a big boost for the Russian economy, but the country still has to overcome problems of bureaucracy and corruption.
