RT KICKS OFF CONFEDERATIONS CUP COVERAGE WITH STAN COLLYMORE
MOSCOW, 16 JUNE – Before the Confederations Cup kicks off tomorrow, catch up with RT’s host Stan Collymore, international ex-football star, as he gets into the Russian spirit. Throughout the run of the Confederations Cup, Stan Collymore will be RT’s host on the ground, providing an inside look at the matches, players, and host cities.
International ex-football star and award-winning broadcast journalist Stan Collymore is ready to share Russian culture with RT audiences throughout the 2017 Confederations Cup. To prove it, Collymore joined RT Host Neil Harvey and Russian football star Aleksandr Mostovoy in a playful rendition of the Russian folk song “Kalinka.” Collymore had arrived in St. Petersburg to celebrate the opening of the city’s stadium and watch a special “Match of Legends” football game between FIFA legends and Russian national team players. After the game, Collymore chatted with Marcel Desailly, French World Cup and European Cup champion, about the warm welcome they’ve received in St. Petersburg and why the Confederations Cup is so important for 2018’s World Cup.
The Confederations Cup starts tomorrow, 17 June at 18:00 Moscow time at the Saint Petersburg stadium. Kicking off the tournament will be a match between Russia and New Zealand. Throughout the 2017 Confederations Cup, Collymore will be RT’s special host and expert, providing exclusive access for RT audiences with behind the scenes footage of the tournament and interviews with top players and key figures. Tune into RT to travel with Collymore around Russia, from Moscow to St. Petersburg to Kazan to Sochi and experience every key moment of the tournament—from the serious to the silly, both on and off the field.
