This coupled with the heavy demand for regular international travel has created a major shortage of accommodations.

Accommodations will be extremely limited and many host cities will not have sufficient accommodations and support systems to handle the masses of fans that will be coming.  Do not be left behind!  Reserve early to insure that your accommodations are available in the type of hotel that you require.

Initially, Great Atlantic Sports Travel will be offering a wide range of hotels for your stay during the Soccer in Russia 2018.  Indicated below are the various types of accommodations that will be available based on the hotel star grading system in Russia.
