FIFA Confederations Cup football fans may apply for free train tickets
December 05, 2016, Moscow – On the website of Transport Directorate-2018 football fans of FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 have an opportunity to apply for a free travel in additional trains between the host cities.
In autumn 2010 the Russian Federation provided a guarantee to FIFA which stipulates that football fans may travel by train between the host cities free of charge in case they have tickets for football matches.
In order to comply with the undertaken commitments the Russian Federation will provide additional trains for football fans who have already obtained tickets and Fan-ID for FIFA Confederations Cup 2017. Trains, as a rule, will consist of 17-18 carriages and will run between the host cities.
Recently it became possible on the website of Transport Directorate-2018 to leave an application for free railway tickets in additional trains. To leave an application one should choose football matches, which he/she would like to visit and leave contact details. After the additional trains are formed, the applicants will receive a notification about the start of ticketing.
“This is the first stage of our information system, which will be fully launched by 2018 FIFA World Cup. Later it will become possible not only to book and confirm free railway tickets, but also to create a travel route between Confederations Cup 2017 and 2018 World Cup football matches, as well as to buy flight tickets between the host cities. The service is designed to simplify travel between the host cities for guests and football fans. Our practices will be certainly useful in the future after the Championship is over”, - Terentii Meshcheriakov, CEO of Transport Directorate-2018, commented the start of service.
