The Moscow region emerged from bid to host the matches of the World Cup 2018, which will be held in Russia. This was stated by the regional governor Boris Gromov, ITAR-TASS reported.

"The Moscow region came from the Russian proposal," - said the head of the region. Responding to a question about the construction of a football stadium in Moscow, sorokatysyachnika, which offered to build the organizing committee of the 2018 World Cup, Gromov said that "we abandoned the idea" because of its unprofitability.

"I do not see the point in the construction of such a huge football stadium, it's not entirely clear how to use it after the World Cup," - said the governor. According to him, the regional administration offered another option - to convert and extend the existing stadium in the center of Podolsk, but the idea did not receive further development. "The organizers did not agree," - said Boris Gromov.
