Reconstruction of the stadiums in Nizhny Novgorod

     That’s Nizhny Novgorod region began actively preparing the sports infrastructure to the requirements of FIFA. So, practice areas – stadiums “Vodnik ” and “Dynamo” in the near future is waiting for the reconstruction of FM 2018.

      At the moment the stadium “Vodnik”, located in the heart of the city – this is not an impressive sight: a groomed field, dilapidated stands, the building, survive your life.

      In stock stadiums will be “North”, “Lokomotiv” (Nizhny Novgorod), “Khimik” (Dzerzhinsk), “Spartacus” (in Bohr).

Nizhny Novgorod. Stadium "Nord".

Nizhny Novgorod. Stadium "Nord".

      Said Dmitry Svatkovsky, deputy governor of the Nizhny Novgorod region, it is easier to upgrade an existing sports base, rather than create new sites. He added that preparations for the World Cup in 2018 should start now, because a lot of work to be done. On his behalf, to the first day of spring, will be prepared a list of actions, to prepare for the 2018 World Cup in football.

      Dissenting opinion:

      As we mentioned a plan to prepare for World Cup 2018 will be offered on 1 March, and it is expected that it will be adopted at the first meeting. In our view, it would be fantastic, if all that happened, but you did not knowingly say “Seven times measure, cut once.”

      Is the administration of Nizhny Novgorod, the Gorky Railway Guide and Nizhny Novgorod airport, the main emergency department, police department and other city authorities can before March 1, prepare proposals for a single action plan, which immediately needs to be approved? In addition, implementation of these measures, according to the government of Nizhny Novgorod, too, should be initiated immediately. Interestingly, whether local budget here so soon to take on himself the decision problems related to FIFA World Cup 2018, and whether the unity between the various infrastructures, as yet had a chance – everyone pulls the blanket over himself, and the sun football championship in 2018 trying to take his place.

Yekaterinburg takes World Cup 2018?

     As we know, the list of host cities championship games in 2018 has the status of preliminary and not yet approved. Only in 2013 will finally know whether all the 13 cities will take FM 2018 or someone will take off from the list. How and by what criteria will form the number of cities in the championship, is unknown. This question deals with Mutko, Minister of Sports of Russia. Before the final decision will be carried out inspection and towns in the willingness to take Game World Cup 2018.

      However, it turns out that the glorious city of Yekaterinburg tour of all the formalities and is already the rightful owner of FIFA World Cup games. At least, it was announced by the authorities of the Sverdlovsk region. The source of this information was a press release, which says if the FIFA committee gave the go-ahead for games in this city. It is in words, but in reality no city received such approval and will not receive it until  a steering committee for World Cup games in 2018.

      It seems that the status of reserve cities in the list of “13″ is haunted by the Yekaterinburg and Sverdlovsk officials are trying to quickly take a strong position in this matter. But to do this, you need real action. What we have at the moment:

      The first funds for the reconstruction of Central Stadium were allocated at the end of December the Bank “Globex”. 118, 6 million rubles – is only the first part of the total loan amount to 1,2 billion rubles for 10 years.

      “This loan is quite enough to finish construction of the stadium” – a word premiere of Sverdlovsk, said in November 2010. The loan was issued in late December of that year.

      But visiting on website one of the shareholders of the Closed Joint Stock Company Central Stadium «Group Sinara» (sinara-group.com) revealed that the total investment in the project – 2.5 billion rubles.

      Among the shareholders of the public corporation «Central Stadium»: Closed Joint Stock Company Group Sinara, the Ministry of property of the Sverdlovsk region and the Municipality of Yekaterinburg. General Contractor – Limited Liability Company “Astra-Story”.

      In general, we are misunderstood, how much is ultimately required for the reconstruction of the stadium – 1.2 billion or 2.5 billion?

      But Sverdlovsk authorities know better now received a statement from them that the stadium is almost ready for the games in 2018: the football field with heating and irrigation works on the establishment of a canopy on the eastern and western stands. Fully begin its work on the stadium will be able to July this year, by the comments of local officials.

Sverdlovsk Region 2018

      For the benefit of Yekaterinburg is the fact that high-speed line will be not between Moscow and Sochi, the capital of Yekaterinburg in the capture of Samara. Of course, not done without the initiative with side of the Yekaterinburg. The governor of the Sverdlovsk region, Alexander Misharin himself made a proposal to join Moscow and Yekaterinburg high-speed rail. However, the budget of Sverdlovsk region is unlikely to pull such expenditure, Quide Railways also intends to allocate funds in full.

      Overall picture of the city’s preparations to take World Cup 2018 will be to observe in the first half of February, the central channel, there is shown a plot on the life of Yekaterinburg on the eve of Games 2018.

      For hotel infrastructure Sverdlovsk also tried: A proposal for the hospitality market is large and there is even a decline in prices. Number of rooms in the Sverdlovsk region is second only to Moscow and Moscow region, Peter and the Leningrad Region, Krasnodar Territory. All this also explains the desire of local authorities to withdraw the city of Yekaterinburg in the rank of major international importance.

      The city has already possible to meet English-language signs with street names, and by March 1 will enter the English versions for stops, whose names will be supplemented by brief information about museums in Yekaterinburg.

      As a result, we see that Yekaterinburg regularly attracts attention, and each time tries to strengthen the faith in him as the city-host World Cup 2018. Analyzing this process can be up to 99% assert that Yekaterinburg take FM 2018. For all of us, not by hearsay know that if a lot and loudly assert itself, then you will certainly notice and distinguish themselves from the crowd. We’ll see come true is one of the main and rather critical statements about what the Central Stadium in July of this year will be completely ready for operation.

Who wants to take away training base in YAROSLAVL? And Why «Shinnik» NOT TAKE World Cup 2018?

     Until the last moment they were all convinced that the games Championship 2018 will be rebuilt stadium «Shinnik». But at the end of January it appears that plans for a new world class stadium. 

     Reconstruction “Shinnik” according to the requirements of FIFA looks inappropriate, upgrading the stadium continues, but with the expectation that it will only driving range in 2018.

stadium «Shinnik»

      The question about construction of a new stadium until at site selection for its construction. Announced two options: Zavolzhsky area and Dzerzhinsky district. In parallel, prepare a project paper on the bottom of indoor soccer arena in Bragin.

      However, the unbridled desire to host the Games in 2018 covers the Vologda. From Vologda football club received a proposal for the reconstruction of the stadium “Dynamo”. Motivate vologodtsy is the fact that all four training facilities can not be fitted in Yaroslavl. And the Dynamo stadium could be one of 72 training fields for the teams FIFA World Cup 2018. It was said that the reconstruction project has been developed. It is known that proposed to eliminate the bulk of the stadium, leaving intact the foundation on which to build and the new building.

      Yaroslavl-heartedly accepted this idea. It believed that the city is quite capable to put all the necessary platform for the training. Director of Stadium «Shinnik», Yuri Bratchenko also added that the cost of reconstruction of the Vologda sports facility can not be justified

      Dissenting opinion:

      With each passing day the desire to have direct relevance to the World Cup in 2018 increased in the Russian cities. If for some distant towns Championship 2018 – is the maximum of several hundred by passing tourists, the prospect of other cities to get to the center of events does not rest. So, Vologda scrambles to be useful Championship, then to FIFA in 2018 benefited her. We do understand that having not let the stadium, but even the training fields has opened an additional influx of tourists, the players. This means that the infrastructure will inevitably get a chance to climb to a higher level, if not at the expense of state budget, the expense of investors, who are most aware of the benefits of investments in projects related to World Cup 2018.

The first sponsors of World Cup 2018

     Preparations for the World Cup in 2018 involving state and business structures at all levels, because this global work requires large investments and hard work. And as the state budget is not made of rubber, and funds can not go only to the needs of the Championship 2018, then to assist in the preparation comes to sponsorship. Although, who is helping who is also a question. It is rather a mutually beneficial cooperation, since participation in the preparation and conduct of the Championship will bring considerable benefits to partners.

      Thus, Rostelecom has expressed his desire to act as a telecommunications partner 2018. The company understands this sponsorship will bring together with your audience and potential customers, developing the brand. About what time is estimated sponsorship not yet been said. However, a representative of Rostelecom, Oleg Rumyantsev, hopes that the partnership will be beneficial for the company and will meet expectations.

      While silent Megafon, MTS, VimpelCom. Do not exclude that possible competition for the sponsorship of the Championship 2018, but these are just guesses.

      Among financial managers also revealed activists. This is “Raiffeisen Capital. The Management Company intends to begin organizing mutual fund, proceeds of which will go to infrastructure development for the championship. The volume of investments for the World Cup 2018 is announced at $ 50 billion. The fund will be spent on the development of metallurgy, construction and engineering industries. The minimum term investments in mutual funds is 3 years.

      Dissenting opinion:

      The idea is really great, and the case for investing in infrastructure facilities is a necessary but should not be blind to one line. If you listen to the words of Vadim Loginov, director of strategic marketing and business development at Alfa-Capital “, even taking into account all factors, the following 7 years (and it is a priori impossible) to predict the high and the total profitability of a project is not really . Recall that the preparation for the Championship has already stirred the clever head, and who knows how resourceful competitors will meet on the road. But it’s a good thing, competition still will bring up the “main front” worthy and necessary projects that will certainly affect the best way to prepare for World Cup 2018 and its conduct.
