Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin understood that the legacy of his FIFA world cup would be partly judged looking at the fate of the stadiums, thus determined to bring the property to good use.
The dominant leader of Russian country, Putin from the past 2 decades has become amazingly emotional.

FIFA World Cup: The Story behind Russia’s Uncertain Future
The esteemed trails of the Soviet sport have come in the era of Russia’s independence in the 1990’s looking messy and flowing cash.
Russia was stalled in scarcity and the only way to pay for maintenance of Luzhniki was by boxing off space to unreliable merchants who set up booths crossways its vast grounds.
It aroused as the hideous symbol of Russia’s troubles until being frayed down in the year 2011 and copiously reconstructed keeping its focus on the World Cup.
What Putin Promised?
The match stadiums that begin to remind you of Luzhniki as it was in the 1990’s will remind neighborhoods of the amount that Putin spent extravagantly showing off how his nation, Russia could flawlessly conduct the most complex event in the world.
Having a spin around the 11 swarmed cities implies that almost all 12 stadiums are struggling around. Only left are 6 who have teams performing in the Premier League that football buffs are agreeable to pay any amount to watch.

Provincial establishments informed the “Kommersant business daily” that managing the novel and reconstructed amenities would cost them up to $100 million per year.
Looking forward, the federal government aims to apportion around $200 million to aid teams and local bureaucrats cover the cost spent.
However, the so-called money would be paid in almost 5 years and used for the betterment, future, and development of youth football and to the other expenses. So, what industry experts are saying is that the appeal of going to the new stadiums helps in boosting tickets sales somewhat.
What is the Solution?
An unusual ban from Putin’s side on flea marketplaces has shot down the proposal that has been reportedly considered by Vladimir Volkov who is a Saransk governor. However, what AECOM thinks is that the outlays wisdom will get determined not through Football but via economy of Russia and how Russia’s Economy and wide geopolitical circumstances have been fair.
Russia has been full of controversies, racism, discrimination, and politics but players like Messi, Christiano Ronaldo, hopes have been alive for the better future of the country.
After the entire world over fans love to watch these players perform and fever is nowhere about to fade in the near future amid next football match.
