LAGOS JUNE 14TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Heads up, soccer fans: The 2018 World Cup in Russia is coming up.

Where is it?
The opening ceremony will take place at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium.

The opening ceremony will take place at 5:30 p.m. local time (10:30 a.m. ET), just 30 minutes before Russia and Saudi Arabia spar off to officially commence this year’s World Cup.
Who’s performing?
World Cup Organizers announced on June 11 that British singer Robbie Williams will perform at the World Cup opening ceremony on Thursday. In the 1990s, Williams was a part of the pop group “Take That.”
“I’m so happy and excited to be going back to Russia for such a unique performance. I’ve done a lot in my career, and opening the FIFA World Cup to 80,000 football fans in the stadium and many millions all over the world is a boyhood dream,” Williams said in a statement.
Additionally, Russian soprano Aida Garifullina will perform alongside Williams while Brazilian soccer star Ronaldo — a two time World Cup champion — is also present during the opening ceremony, according to FIFA.
