Therefore, entry into Russia with a FAN ID is possible starting from 4 June through 15 July 2018. The FAN ID holders must leave the country no later than 25 July 2018.

FAN ID also entitles spectators to free travel on additional trains connecting the 2018 FIFA World Cup(TM) host cities and on public transportation of the host cities on match days.
