GREAT EFFECTS OF THE WORLD CUP ON RUSSIAN TOURISM SECTOR
The FIFA World Cup starts on June 14 and a lot of fans will visit Russia who want to experience the atmosphere of the World Cup.
According to the official FIFA World Cup website more than 1.8 million tickets were sold for the matches. The most part of fans are from the USA, Brazil, Colombia and Germany.
The contribution of tourism to Russia’s GDP is projected at $2 billion for 2018. It is expected that the tourist flow will not only increase, but also the level of expenditure will change. One of the reasons is that tourists will arrive on average for 12 days. There will be more guests from far abroad and there is no escape from the rise in prices for transport, accommodation and food, which will affect not only visitors of the FIFA World Cup but also ordinary tourists. The World Cup will have great effects on the sector, as well as free railway travel and affordable airfare rates will be provided.
