Screening of the opening ceremony of the World Cup 2018 in Russia took place at the Russia’s “Fan’s House” based at the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in London. The screening of the opening ceremony of the 2018 World Cup and the first match of the tournament Russia-Saudi Arabia gathered football fans from all over the UK.

The winners of the "football" twitter quiz, held by the Russian Embassy with support of Rossotrudnichestvo, were awarded with memorable prizes.

The "Readiness №1" exhibition, organized by Rossotrudnichestvo in partnership with the information agency and radio Sputnik, was presented in the course of the event. The exposition clearly demonstrates the fantastic volume of works performed by Russia on the preparation, re-equipment, modernization and construction of all necessary infrastructure for the World Cup. Sputnik’s photographers visited host cities of the championship and captured all of the preparation stages of the stadiums and infrastructure for this great event.
