World Cup 2018 Structure

The 2018 FIFA World Cup fixtures begin with hosts Russia taking on Saudi Arabia on June 14th.

For the next 14 days, each of the 32 teams involved will complete their three group-stage fixtures. There will be approximately three matches per day throughout this section.

To avoid any complications or unfair advantages, the World Cup Schedule dictates that each team in the group will play their final match on the same day with both fixtures kicking off in tandem. These fixtures could be potentially crucial in deciding which teams will progress to the knock-out round of the tournament. The Group Stage will conclude with Japan vs Poland and Senegal vs Colombia on June 28th.

The Knock-Out stage of the competition begins on June 30th with 16 teams left in the tournament and they will each be hoping to book a place in the quarter-finals. There will be two fixtures per day which will be completed on July 3rd.

Following a two-day break, the quarter-finals get underway on July 6th with these fixtures staged across two days. This will see eight teams reduced to just four.

The World Cup 2018 schedule continues on July 10th with the first of the semi-finals taking place in St.Petersburg. The second will be held the following day in Moscow.

The two losing sides will meet one another in the third place play-off match which is held on July 14th before the final gets underway in Moscow 24 hours later.
