Russia 2018

Today FIFA announced that Russia will get the right to host the 2018 World Cup!  This is the first time in history that the biggest sporting event in the world would be held in Russia.  Ten years ago I would never would have thought that this is possible, but in recent years Russia really brought up both their soccer and living standards.  With the 2014 Winter Olympics being held in Sochi and now this, I think Russian sports and culture would be on a rapid rise.  I had a chance to check out the bid that Russia submitted, and honestly, all the new facilities that they are trying to build are pretty amazing.  Here is the official bid page.  If you want to take a look at the host cities and the new stadiums, here is a link for that.  Congratulations to Russia!
