CONFEDERATIONS CUP SPECIAL HOST STAN COLLYMORE HELPS FANS DISCOVER SOCHI BEFORE SEMI-FINAL
MOSCOW, 28 JUNE – RT Confederations Cup Special Host Stan Collymore joins RT presenter Neil Harvey for an in-depth look at how the home of the 2014 Olympic games has transformed in preparation for the Confederations Cup while enjoying some fun on the Formula 1 race track.
International ex-football star and award-winning broadcaster Stan Collymore and RT presenter Neil Harvey begin their tour of Sochi at Fisht Stadium, originally built for the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games. Collymore and Harvey inspect the newly installed pitch to see whether or not the renovated stadium is ready for its new life as a host for the Confederations Cup games—and the 2018 World Cup.
Collymore and Harvey also show off Sochi’s diversity, starting at the beach and then trekking all the way up to the top of Rosa Peak. Within the span of two hours, fans and visitors of Sochi can move from the sand to the snow.
For a little fun off the field, Collymore and Harvey head to the Sochi autodrom, the home of the Russian Formula 1 Grand Prix, where Collymore decides to test his football skills against the speed and accuracy of a Russian racecar. To find out the winner, check out the video here.
The next Confederations Cup match takes place on the 29 of June at Sochi’s Fisht Stadium at 21:00 where Germany will face off against Mexico in the semifinal round of the competition. Harvey and Collymore will continue to provide an exclusive look and behind-the-scenes coverage of the competition.
