In 2018, the largest country in the world, Russia, will host the World Cup Tournament for the first time.

In a symbolic gesture Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin and FIFA President Sepp Blatter took part in a 2014-2018 FIFA World Cup hand-over ceremony.

“FIFA’s World Cup in Brazil had a very special message to give – a message of togetherness and of connecting people, a message of peace and of anti-discrimination. We have enjoyed a successful World Cup and we will have a legacy in this country. At the same time there is a responsibility for the next host country and I’m confident that Russia will take on this responsibility and also give us a wonderful World Cup to remember in 2018,” said Blatter.

Russia will stage the Preliminary Draw next July in Saint Petersburg when the qualifying pathway for FIFA’s member associations will be defined at the Preliminary Draw.
