The draw was held on 1 December at Pot 1 contained the hosts Russia who were automatically assigned to position A1 and the best seven teams, pot 2 contained the next best eight teams, and so on for pots 3 and 4. However, teams from the same confederation still were not drawn against each other for the group stage, except that two UEFA teams could be in each group.
Initially, each team had to name a preliminary squad of 30 players but, in February , this was increased to Players in the final squad may be replaced for serious injury up to 24 hours prior to kickoff of the team's first match and such replacements do not need to have been named in the preliminary squad. For players named in the player preliminary squad, there was a mandatory rest period between 21 and 27 May , except for those involved in the UEFA Champions League Final played on 26 May.
On 29 March , FIFA released the list of 36 referees and 63 assistant referees selected to oversee matches. VAR operations for all games are operating from a single headquarters in Moscow, which receives live video of the games and are in radio contact with the on-field referees. VAR had a significant impact in several games. Russia proposed the following host cities: The bid evaluation report stated: Three of the 16 stadiums would be renovated, and 13 would be newly constructed.
In October , Russia decreased the number of stadiums from 16 to Construction of the proposed Podolsk stadium in the Moscow region was cancelled by the regional government, and also in the capital, Otkrytiye Arena was competing with Dynamo Stadium over which would be constructed first. The final choice of host cities was announced on 29 September The number of cities was further reduced to 11 and number of stadiums to 12 as Krasnodar and Yaroslavl were dropped from the final list.
Sepp Blatter stated in July that, given the concerns over the completion of venues in Russia, the number of venues for the tournament may be reduced from 12 to He also said, "We are not going to be in a situation, as is the case of one, two or even three stadiums in South Africa , where it is a problem of what you do with these stadiums".
They were satisfied with the progress. Of the twelve venues used, the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow and the Saint Petersburg Stadium — the two largest stadiums in Russia — were used most, both hosting seven matches. Sochi, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod and Samara all hosted six matches, including one quarter-final match each, while the Otkrytiye Stadium in Moscow and Rostov-on-Don hosted five matches, including one round-of match each. Volgograd, Kaliningrad, Yekaterinburg and Saransk all hosted four matches, but did not host any knockout stage games.
Base camps were used by the 32 national squads to stay and train before and during the World Cup tournament. Costs continued to balloon as preparations were underway. Platov International Airport in Rostov-on-Don was upgraded with automated air traffic control systems, modern surveillance, navigation, communication, control, and meteorological support systems.
Saransk Airport received a new navigation system; the city also got two new hotels, Mercure Saransk Centre Accor Hotels and Four Points by Sheraton Saransk Starwood Hotels as well as few other smaller accommodation facilities.
The last facility commissioned was a waste treatment station in Volgograd. In Yekaterinburg, where four matches are hosted, hosting costs increased to over 7. Preference, especially in the key areas, was given to those with knowledge of foreign languages and volunteering experience, but not necessarily to Russian nationals.
Free public transport services were offered for ticketholders during the World Cup, including additional trains linking between host cities, as well as services such as bus service within them. The full schedule was announced by FIFA on 24 July without kick-off times, which were confirmed later.
Russia was placed in position A1 in the group stage and played in the opening match at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on 14 June against Saudi Arabia , the two lowest-ranked teams of the tournament at the time of the final draw. The Krestovsky Stadium in Saint Petersburg hosted the first semi-final on 10 July and the third place play-off on 14 July. The opening ceremony took place on Thursday, 14 June , at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, preceding the opening match of the tournament between hosts Russia and Saudi Arabia.
Former Brazilian World Cup-winning striker Ronaldo walked out with a child wearing a Russia shirt. English pop singer Robbie Williams then performed two songs before he and Russian soprano Aida Garifullina performed a duet while other performers emerged, dressed in the flags of all 32 teams and carrying a sign bearing the name of each nation. Dancers were also present. Competing countries were divided into eight groups of four teams groups A to H.
Teams in each group played one another in a round-robin basis, with the top two teams of each group advancing to the knockout stage. Ten European teams and four South American teams progressed to the knockout stage, together with Japan and Mexico.
For the first time since , Germany reigning champions did not advance past the first round. For the first time since , no African team progressed to the second round. For the first time, the fair play criteria came into use, when Japan qualified over Senegal due to having received fewer yellow cards.
Only one match, France v Denmark, was goalless. Until then there were a record 36 straight games in which at least one goal was scored. All times listed below are local time. The ranking of teams in the group stage was determined as follows: In the knockout stages, if a match is level at the end of normal playing time, extra time is played two periods of 15 minutes each and followed, if necessary, by a penalty shoot-out to determine the winners.
If a match went into extra time, each team was allowed to make a fourth substitution, the first time this had been allowed in a FIFA World Cup tournament. Twelve own goals were scored during the tournament, doubling the record of six set in In total, only four players were sent off in the entire tournament, the fewest since A player is automatically suspended for the next match for the following offences: The following awards were given at the conclusion of the tournament.

Prize money amounts were announced in October The tournament logo was unveiled on 28 October by cosmonauts at the International Space Station and then projected onto Moscow's Bolshoi Theatre during an evening television programme.
Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko said that the logo was inspired by "Russia's rich artistic tradition and its history of bold achievement and innovation", and FIFA President Sepp Blatter stated that it reflected the "heart and soul" of the country. The official mascot for the tournament was unveiled 21 October , and selected through a design competition among university students.
A public vote was used to select from three finalists—a cat, a tiger, and a wolf. The first phase of ticket sales started on 14 September , The general visa policy of Russia did not apply to participants and spectators, who were able to visit Russia without a visa right before and during the competition regardless of their citizenship. A Fan-ID was required to enter the country visa-free, while a ticket, Fan-ID and a valid passport were required to enter stadiums for matches.
Fan-IDs also granted World Cup attendees free access to public transport services, including buses, and train service between host cities. Fan-ID was administered by the Ministry of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media , who could revoke these accreditations at any time to "ensure the defence capability or security of the state or public order".

The choice of Russia as host has been challenged. Controversial issues have included the level of racism in Russian football,    and discrimination against LGBT people in wider Russian society.
Allegations of corruption in the bidding processes for the and World Cups caused threats from England's FA to boycott the tournament. Garcia , a US attorney, to investigate and produce a report on the corruption allegations.
Eckert's summary cleared Russia and Qatar of any wrongdoing, but was denounced by critics as a whitewash. On 3 June , the FBI confirmed that the federal authorities were investigating the bidding and awarding processes for the and World Cups.
In response to the March poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal , British Prime Minister Theresa May announced that no British ministers or members of the royal family would attend the World Cup, and issued a warning to any travelling England fans. The British Foreign Office and MPs had repeatedly warned English football fans and "people of Asian or Afro-Caribbean descent" travelling to Russia of "racist or homophobic intimidation, hooligan violence and anti-British hostility".
At the close of the World Cup Russia was widely praised for its success in hosting the tournament, with Steve Rosenberg of the BBC deeming it "a resounding public relations success" for Putin, adding, "The stunning new stadiums, free train travel to venues and the absence of crowd violence has impressed visiting supporters.
Russia has come across as friendly and hospitable: All the foreign fans I have spoken to are pleasantly surprised. FIFA President Gianni Infantino stated, "Everyone discovered a beautiful country, a welcoming country, that is keen to show the world that everything that has been said before might not be true.
A lot of preconceived ideas have been changed because people have seen the true nature of Russia. The elimination of the US national team in qualifying led to concerns that US interest and viewership of this World Cup would be reduced especially among "casual" viewers interested in the US team , especially noting how much Fox paid for the rights, and that US games at the World Cup peaked at During a launch event prior to the elimination, Fox stated that it had planned to place a secondary focus on the Mexican team in its coverage to take advantage of their popularity among US viewers factoring Hispanic and Latino Americans.
Fox stated that it was still committed to broadcasting a significant amount of coverage for the tournament. In February , Ukrainian rightsholder UA: PBC stated that it would not broadcast the World Cup.
This came in the wake of growing boycotts of the tournament among the Football Federation of Ukraine and sports minister Ihor Zhdanov. Broadcast rights to the tournament in the Middle East were hampered by an ongoing diplomatic crisis in Qatar over alleged support of extremist groups.
Qatar is the home country of the region's rightsholder, beIN Sports. On 2 June , beIN pulled its channels from Du and Etisalat , but with service to the latter restored later that day.
Etisalat subsequently announced that it would air the World Cup in the UAE, and continue to offer beIN normally and without interruptions. There are some broad exemptions from MiFID that are relevant to insurers, group treasurers, many authorized professional firms, professional investors who invest only for themselves, pension schemes, depositaries and operators of collective investment schemes or other collective investment undertakings such as investment trusts , journalists, and commodity.
More specifically, these exemptions apply when investment services are offered in an incidental manner in the course of a professional activity that is subject to legal or regulatory provisions or a code of ethics. So what does this mean for a Copy Trading business? Theoretically, it means that where Copy Trading services are offered in an incidental manner to the activities of a professional firm, as detailed above, no authorization would be required.
However, whilst this may be possible, defining an incidental activity gives rise to its own complexities. To be incidental, any Copy Trading service would have to be required by the business but fall outside of the scope of its main offering. Further clarity on this concept is difficult and would likely be assessed on a case by case basis. Offering an EA rental option essentially changes the Copy Trading business model.
Instead of trades being copied from a master account clients simply rent an EA. From a regulatory standpoint, this would no longer be defined as Copy Trading and as such would not fall under standard Copy Trading regulation e. Portfolio Management or Investment Advice. Whilst the EA may relate to financial instruments that fall under MiFID there is no clear regulated activity taking place. Investment Advice is the most likely classification of this activity, however, the FCA handbook states that:.
Merely providing information to clients should not itself normally amount to investment advice. Hence, renting an EA to a client based on a display of its performance, which the client can test using a demo account is unlikely to amount to investment advice or any other regulated activity requiring authorization. The type of passport required will vary based upon the service proposition, for example, a FOREX Copy Trading business will need a specific form of a passport.
In most cases, the firm will also require authorisation by the local countries regulator although authorization requirements can often be less stringent.
As a result, certain MiFID based requirements would then apply. Regulation is based on where the specific activity takes place i. Authorization will be required by the FCA although firms can reduce the complexity of this authorization by adapting their operating model.
Exemptions from MiFID are also possible although likely to be too restrictive. Despite regulatory requirements, a Copy Trading business within the UK has the potential to be extremely viable.
Regulatory requirements are in place to protect consumers but they also provide reassurance and credibility to those firms that adhere to them. In this way, a Copy Trading firm that acquires authorization which is not a necessarily complex process may lead to higher long run profitability.
The US financial system is regulated through several channels see table below however, the majority of these regulators are not relevant to Copy Trading businesses. Securities and derivatives regulators monitor exchanges that host the trading of financial contracts, oversee the disclosures that market participants provide, and enforce rules against deceptive or manipulative trading practices.
Securities, Derivatives, and Similar Contract Markets Federal securities regulation has traditionally focused on disclosure and mitigating conflicts of interest, fraud, and attempted market manipulation. Securities regulation is designed to ensure that market participants have access to enough information to make informed decisions, rather than to limit the riskiness of the business models of publicly traded firms.
SEC registration in no way implies that an investment is safe, only that material risks have been disclosed. The SEC also registers several classes of securities market participants and firms. Although the SEC is concerned with ensuring the safety and soundness of the firms it regulates, its primary concern is maintaining fair and orderly markets and protecting investors from fraud. Firms that sell securities—stocks and bonds—to the public are required to register with the SEC.
Registration entails the publication of detailed information about the firm, its management, the intended uses for the funds raised through the sale of securities, and the risks to investors.
Derivatives trading is supervised by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission CFTC , which oversees trading on the futures exchanges, which have self-regulatory responsibilities as well. The CFTC was created in to regulate commodities futures and options markets. Like the SEC, the CFTC oversees industry self-regulatory organizations and requires the registration of a range of industry firms and personnel, including futures commission merchants brokers , floor traders, commodity pool operators, and commodity trading advisers.
The CFTC is the regulator with which Copy Trading businesses should be concerned and any information provided below will be focused to this effect. No agency is granted sole authority to regulate the mechanics of foreign exchange trading, except to the extent foreign exchange futures are offered on regulated exchanges. Alternatively, if a Copy Trading business were deemed to be providing investment advice it would need to be registered as a Commodity Trading Advisor.
A Commodity Trading Advisor is defined as:. Similarly, if no authority is exercised over the client account and specific advice is not provided e. For example, a firm that sends SMS messages to a client based on their risk return preferences but excludes others with different risk return requirements then this would be specific advice which would require CTA registration.
If this same firm sent generic advice, but automatically executed orders in the client account, then it would also be classed as a CTA. On the other hand, if generic SMS advice was provided and execution was left up to the discretion of the client, then CTA registration should not be necessary. However, as stated above, different Copy Trading structures lead to different regulatory requirements. These will be covered across the following section. As with the UK, in the majority of cases Copy Trading businesses will require registration.
Again, it is recommended to do so as this assuages the doubts of customers and ensures proof that the business operates in a credible manner. The above list simply shows the broad classification the CFTC gives to commodity trading systems — these systems will require registration unless they are exempt. The principal exemption relates to Copy Trading businesses that fall within the definition of Commodity Trading Advisors.
A direct excerpt from the National Futures Association website states the following:. Also, the CTA may not direct client accounts. In line with the above, a Copy Trading business that just provides standardised advice i. An example of this could be to simply provide access to the trading strategies of other, or individual, traders for clients to copy.
This could be done through a subscription services that allows clients to observe the trades of others in real time or through a generic alert system such as email, phone call or text message.
An individual could also allow others to view their own trades by adopting the same model to the above. Any Copy Trading business operating under the above exemptions should be mindful of its Introducing Broker requirements if it falls in line with the conditions set out above.
Lastly, a Copy Trading business using this exemption may wish to add further detail to its terms and conditions as an additional layer of protection. See below for an example extract:. Would offering an EA rental option instead of traditional Copy Trading require registration? Regulation on this point, as in the UK, is less clear but would likely tie in with the standardized advice offering above.
However, Copy Trading businesses should again be aware of the regulation relating to Introducing Brokers as per the definition of an Introducing Broker provided in the previous section.
Again, more specific NFA wording on what would be classified as an exemption is provided below:. For example, a UK based firm that is regulated by the FCA could submit for exemption in the US as it would be deemed to be regulated to similar levels. A list of organisations, their home countries and the status of their exemption can be accessed through this link and will provide a deeper understanding of the likelihood of receiving an exemption.
In order to operate without registration within the US these firms must submit an exemption form that can be located on the CFTC website. The process involves a degree of scrutiny by the NFA to assess validity.
