A bond born from football comes full circle as a father and son from Mexico will be among the lucky fans at the Luzhniki Stadium for the Opening Match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup™. 

Roberto Granados from Mexico City shared his story in the Bring Someone Special campaign describing why he would choose his father to bring with him to the Opening Match: ‘Instead of going to the Azteca Stadium and witness the Mexico vs Bulgaria match in the 1986 FIFA World Cup™, my dad went to the hospital.
