It's More Than Just Football: Realizing the Opportunities of World Cup 2018
24 January 2018
17:00
According to experts, Russia’s attractiveness to foreign investors has risen over the last two years. An important role in this process has been played by various major international sporting events held in the country, including the Olympic Games, the FIFA Confederations Cup, and the World Cup, which attract an enormous number of fans, tourists, and business executives, provide the country with an opportunity to demonstrate its potential, and stimulate the development of infrastructure which can be used in the longer term. How are the authorities in Moscow making use of these opportunities? Where are the most favourable conditions for investment being created? Which sectors benefit the most from
the hosting of major events? Moscow is expecting more than a million extra tourists during World Cup 2018 — is the city ready to receive them? How can the economic impact of hosting major events be assessed? What conditions must the Moscow authorities put in place in order not to miss out on the positive effects? Which sectors might receive the strongest stimulus for growth? What other positive effects do major international sporting events have on life in major cities? What other events outside the world of sport could have a positive influence on the investment climate? What plans are in place to make use of the
infrastructure that will remain after World Cup 2018?
