Moscow beer shortage not impacting World Cup venues, Budweiser says

Luzhniki Stadium

Success of the Russian national team at the Russia-hosted FIFA World Cup has turned even 80-year-old babushkas into football fans, General Director of the 2018 Local Organizing Committee (LOC) Alexei Sorokin told reporters on Wednesday.

WORLD CUP 2018 POWER RANKINGS - Here are the 20 World Cup players who performed best in the opening round of group-stage games, according to Sky Sports' Power Rankings, and the number of points they've been awarded by the scoring system. The term was later reduced to six years.

Former Fifa spokesman Thomas Renggli told AFP that Blatter would meet Putin on Wednesday.

The 82-year-old Swiss was found guilty by Federation Internationale de Football Association of financial misconduct, and remains under investigation by authorities in his homeland for a 2 million Swiss francs (HK$15.7 million) "disloyal payment" in 2011 to former Uefa president Michel Platini, who resigned from his post. Both men denied any wrongdoing.

To celebrate the beginning of the World Cup, a Chandigarh Physical Education teacher, Balraj Singh, carved out a miniature sculpture of the FIFA World Cup trophy here.

England bid for this year's tournament but lost out to Russian Federation, in spite of being one of the favourites.

The whole world is under the grip of the ongoing Federation Internationale de Football Association fever with fans cheering for their favourite teams as matches are being played in host country Russia.

"There have been no concrete agreements or understandings, and no specific discussions are being conducted now", the spokesman said at the time.

"I am suspended and the suspension is as a Federation Internationale de Football Association president".

He goes on to say "I spoke with one of your colleagues".

To bring fans into the FIFA World Cup™ conversation like never before, FIFA offers a diverse array of global fan-engagement initiatives.

"I just saw him and said I have to take a picture with him", Mexico fan Maximiliano Vazquez said after taking a photograph with Blatter. "If you are a judge, I would be happy now if they terminated this matter in the Swiss justice, and they will do it".

Insisting he is not corrupt, Blatter talked whimsically about his warm reception in Moscow.

"We have good contacts with Mr Infantino". As the World Cup's official beer sponsor, Budweiser holds exclusive rights to sell beer at 12 World Cup venues across 11 Russian cities, including Moscow.
