Mobile office created furor on 1st match day

15 June 2018

On the day of the 1st FIFA World Cup match in Saint Petersburg, June 15, the mobile Visit Petersburg office caused an unprecedented agiotage among football fans. Within few hours disappeared almost all handouts, which include booklets, souvenirs and gifts as well as maps of the city.

Decorated with FIFA symbols the mobile office of the City Tourist Information Bureau is now placed at the northernmost football arena of the tourney — Saint Petersburg Stadium.

Before the match between Iran and Morocco, all the fans were provided with the necessary reference literature on St. Petersburg, souvenirs and, most importantly, the friendly atmosphere.

The Visit Petersburg team answered all questions of football tourists, provided them support in the choice of locations and variety of leisure, and wished good luck to each team. And the fans in turn promised to come back again to the beautiful city on the Neva.
