World Cup boost for Russia

Billions being spent on stadiums and infrastructure to host 2018 football World Cup.

    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.
