How many matches will take place in Russia 2018?

It is set to be a very hectic schedule, with 64 matches taking place across the course of the World Cup 2018 and football fans in for a real treat. Russia begin proceedings with the opening match in Group A on the 14, with the other two sides in that section facing one another 24 hours later.

The full groups will not be confirmed until the draw takes place at the beginning of December but there will be at least two matches per day during a busy group stage before the schedule eases and the games become spread out.

How will the full schedule look?

WC 2018 scheduleWe won’t know the full extent of the schedule for World Cup 2018 until the draw takes place in Moscow on December 1, where each nation will be praying for a kind draw.

Each team will be required to play three group games with staggered kick off times for the first two. The third and final matches will be played at the same time to avoid any unfair advantages or disadvantages.

It will a relentless romp through the group stages with every side featuring before they are whittled down to just 16. There will be a two-day break before the knock-out rounds commence.

The quarterfinals begin on July 6 and 7 as the stakes begin to become much higher before the semi-finals follow just four or five days later. The final takes place on July 15, which is preceded by the tournament tradition of the third place playoff contest that will decide who finishes with a bronze medal!

It’s set to be a tremendous showcase of talent with some of the best players in the world on the same stage and here at BettingTop10, we cannot wait for Russia 2018 to get underway on June 14, 2018.
