The exhibition "Football goes to the East" will be opened in Saint Petersburg
The Central Museum of Communications named after A. Popov (Pochtamtsky Lane, 4) will host the opening of the exhibition "Football goes to the East", timed to the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, on 14 June, 2018 at 15:00.
The exhibition contains the most complete collection of licensed philatelic materials issued in our country specifically for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™. The total amount is of about two hundred postage stamps, envelopes and postcards with the official symbols of the World Championship – from the post card, dedicated to the preliminary drawing of 2015, to the post block "Final", which will be released on the day of the first game on 14 June, 2018.
The most valuable exhibits are the preparatory materials for the publication of stamps: approved original layouts and printed projects that exist in a single copy.
The exhibition presents all the first "football" brands of foreign countries, the USSR and the Russian Federation (from the collection of Vladimir Falin), historical posters and entrance tickets.
