Those prices aren't expensive - even for non residents

Great that the ticket will count as a visa..

Should do the same for F1

Don't shoot the messenger, links to articles posted, don't necessarily reflect my personal opinion.

How to get your Fan ID for the 2017 Confederations Cup and 2018 World Cup

http://rbth.com/sport/2016/12/08/how-to-get-your-fan-id-for-the-2017-confederations-cup-and-2018-world-cup_654773

So, you go to the link in TC's article... it is in English.. Great ! ..But if you read the small print - one's names must be in Cyrillic characters..?!

That's going to be 'fun' for some non Russian speakers :)

Early days, I suppose

I don't have time to read all that stuff :laugh:

Can someone who has please tell me:

If I buy some tickets for the match here in Russia and send them to friends, they just fill in the application form and receive the Fan ID ? But it looks like they need to enter Russia to collect this?   :rolleye0009:

I think this must be for RU citizens or those not needing / already have visas

Here's where to buy tickets:

My apologies ... talked to a mate who is involved with FIFA / Russia on the two events ...

If you have bought tickets and fill in the form with the reference numbers - you'll get the 'fan id' issued in your home nation and you CAN fill in the form in Latin characters

Just tried to book Germany v Australia at Sochi on 19th June 2017

The cheapest ticket is 295 USD or 19,800 Roubles if you are a Russian Citizen resident in Russia ?

This can't be right ..
RU citizen and  RU resident
Stadium: SCH - Fisht Stadium
Matches 04,06,11,14
Category: CAT 3 - Category 3

Demand:
Low
Category Price: RUB 19800

I don't think they'll be selling many tickets for this World Cup tester .... Sochi is more expensive than Moscow or Piter ?

Sounds like to much trouble!! I think its just easier to make a visa ... :laugh: Time is money, I would rather have no friends arrive than spend 6 months trying to sort out what they need to do to get a free visa. :Zzzzsleep:

Thats the end of that subject for me.. :Zzzzsleep:

Moby likes to take the long and complicated road if it's free. He imported a previous woman similarly.

Ah, yet another 'Manny knows Moby better than Moby' moment ? :))

Short  [ and accurate ] version ...

Moby lived in another EU nation
Moby had two nationalities
Moby had no aim to move back to the UK
She had a son  who was nearly 18 - so Moby chose the route that was best for him - when it was clear that living in the UK was best for his education.
