20 free trains will transport fans to Moscow for the second semifinal of the 2018 World Cup 

20 free trains will transport around 12,500 fans to Moscow and back for the second semi-final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia. Trains will arrive at 3 railway stations in Moscow from Saint Petersburg, Samara, Kazan and Sochi, with intermediate stops in Tver, Ruzaevka, Tuapse, Rostov Glavnij, and Krasnodar. 

The second World Cup semi-final will be held on July 11 at 9 p.m., where the teams of England and Croatia will meet. About 7% of the passengers are citizens of the semi-finalist countries. In total, there are 90 nationalities on these trains, primarily Russians.  More than 180 employees of the “Transport Directorate-2018” are working at the 3 railway stations in Moscow – Kazansky, Paveletsky and Leningradsky. They are ready to provide any on-spot assistance to the passengers, including help in booking and receiving tickets. To get a free train ticket, fans are required to have a passport, the FAN ID, a ticket to the match or a confirmed match ticket application in the Host City, to which they arrive or depart from.

We would like to remind everyone that free train tickets can be obtained not only in the ticket offices at the railway stations but also at tickets.transport2018.com or by calling the “Transport Directorate-2018” hotline at: 8 (800) 775-20-18 (for calls within Russia) or +7 (495) 741-18-18 (for calls from abroad).
