The spectacle is anticipated by more than half billion of viewers around the world. The opening ceremony will be available on any broadcasting partner channels in most regions.
Unlike the previous World Cups, this World Cup 2018 Opening Ceremony seems to be unique. It’s due to the fact that until this time, there is no theme song officially published to promote the World Cup 2018. Even though it doesn’t affect the world’s euphoria, it’s certainly a little bit awkward for no theme song. However, there are is Jason Derulo’s “Colors” that may represent the event. It’s actually the official anthem of Coca-Cola for World Cup 2018, but you can’t find it the official page yet. Shakira with her “Waka Waka” had boosted the World Cup back in 2010 and Pitbull with his “we are one (ole ola)” was certainly amazing.
It’s quite interesting to see how Russia will host the Opening Ceremony Live Performances in the Luzhniki stadium. There will be certainly dances, parades, and singers but there are no official updates yet about the International artists who will perform in the opening ceremony. However, the spoilers are that Russian big stars will support the live performance. There will be some updates in the next days, stay tuned on our website to get the update.

The economic impact has been an issue following the year 2019. However, the Russian government predicts that hosting the World Cup 2018 will boost the economic growth of the country.
Two remarkable issues are alcohol ban and doping during the World Cup 2018 Russia. There will be alcohol-free perimeter set around the stadiums regarding the English supporters behavior. This ban is controversial following the diplomatic tension between UK and Russia. In other hands, some prescribed marijuana and heroine are allowed in the stadium. Even though the regulation is actually tight, it becomes an issue for these recent months.
