World Cup 2018: A Guide To the World Cup Stadiums in Russia

The 2018 World Cup has been given to Russia and it will be the first time Russia has ever hosted the tournament. As one of the biggest countries in the world there is plenty of space to hold the tournament. Unfortunately for the Russians, not a lot of it has been built yet. 

The Russian's bid had 14 cities included and divided those cities into five different clusters. One in the north, one in the south, one central cluster, and one Volga River cluster. The city of Yekaterinburg is featured as its own cluster as it is the only city beyond the Ural Mountains that is included.

Of these 14 cities included in the Russian proposal there will be 16 stadiums hosting matches. However, of those 16 stadia, several of them have yet to be built. Russia plans on building nine more stadiums for the 2018 World Cup, in addition to several of the stadia that are already being built. Unfortunately, in what may be a sign to come, several of these stadiums have are way behind schedule. Some of them were schedule to be open by now, and have not even had construction started on them. 

Without further ado, here is a guide to the stadiums that will be used for the 2018 World Cup, both the ones that have been built and the ones that need to be built.
