According to the interlocutor of radio station, the organizers were going to hold events in the fan zones, prepared for the fans, by themselves, “without consulting anyone”. No documents, he said, was not signed.
“They wanted to take it for free without paying for anything at all. The cost of one day fan zone is tens of millions of rubles. They wanted to make it free for themselves, while selling tickets. Some cities went, Kazan, Ekaterinburg — they agreed to these conditions, apparently, from the budget of the region. Although it is unclear why a commercial entity sells tickets, and the budgets of the regions have to compensate for,” said the source.
