FIFA has today confirmed the list of Team Base Camps (TBCs) of the 32 teams that will participate in the 2018 FIFA World Cup™.

The TBCs will be the teams’ headquarters during the tournament and all of them will include a hotel and training site located a short distance from each other. They will also be approximately an hour's drive from an airport capable of landing medium-sized aircraft. A total of 123 visits were made by the various team delegations to the proposed TBCs during the selection process.

During the group stage of the competition, all teams will stay and train between matches in their TBC and travel from there to the Host City of their respective match, where they will overnight at a Venue Specific Team Hotel (VSTH) and have the opportunity to train in a Venue-Specific Training Site (VSTS). In principle, all teams should stay in the VSTH the nights before and after the match in question.

Following the group stage, the teams that advance to the next rounds will have the option to remain using their TBCs or move from Host City to Host City depending on where their matches take place.

As from five days before the respective team’s first match in the FIFA World Cup™, with the sole exception of official training sessions in a stadium, each team should only use the official training sites allocated to it for training sessions or preparation matches. All teams are expected to arrive in the host country at least five days before their first match.

The full list of Team Base Camps, as well as further background details, is available below.
