Russian Local Organizing Committee chief Alexey Sorokin told TASS that council members had “unanimously” recognized the event as the best in World Cup history.
“A detailed report on the 2018 World Cup was presented (at the FIFA Council meeting). Colin Smith (FIFA Director of Competitions) submitted a fact-based report on the competition, I also delivered an emotional speech on the World Cup general aspects,” Sorokin told TASS.
“On the whole the 2018 World Cup was unanimously recognized as the best ever in history. This was mentioned in the report which was approved by the Council.
“In many areas, achievements recorded at the previous World Cups were broken. Our innovative initiatives, including free public transport and the Fan ID system, were deemed successful,” he added.
The 2018 World Cup was held at 12 venues in 11 Russian cities from June 14 to July 15, with France lifting the trophy after victory over Croatia in the final at Luzhniki Stadium.
