2018 Major Events; FIFA World Cup

Finally, it’s here. The biggest sporting event will take place across Russia in June and July in 2018, the FIFA World Cup. Held every 4 years where 32 teams undertake a grueling qualification phase, the FIFA World Cup is simply a celebration of the world game. Always full of colour, noise and drama, the World Cup is simply a sporting event that should be on everyone’s bucket list.

Russia will host their first World Cup tournament, with 11 cities having the privilege to host a match. Reigning world champions, Germany who saluted four years ago in Brazil, will undoubtedly be one of the heavy favourites alongside powerhouse countries Brazil, Argentina & Spain.


One of the most shocking results from the qualification process was Italy failing to qualify for the World Cup Finals for the first time in half a century. On the other hand, the Cinderella story of Iceland, a nation with population of 330,000 people, has captured the hearts of many from around the world. They will certainly be everyone’s second team in the tournament with a lot of neutrals jumping on their bandwagon.
