It has been six day sinceĀ the death of Yegor Sviridov after he and a group of others got into a physical confrontation with a man from the North Caucasus region resulting in the death of Sviridov who was only 28. Since then, the renowned clubs Ultra supporters have shown an outcry of support for their fallen brother taking to the streets, the stands, and just about anywhere else.
The suspected man who shot Sviriodv with 4 rubber bullets has been detained and claims he has the paperwork to allow him to carry the gun. It started first on Tuesday when a group of 1,000 fans gathered on a busy street in Moscow blocking traffic en route to a city airport.

It only took 80 years.
The world’s biggest party and football event is finally coming to the motherland.
Although FIFA President Sepp Blatter’s speech prior to announcing the winners seemingly took even longer, it only took one word from his mouth to electrify a nation quickly entering a deep winter freeze. Russia! Rossiya! As many were coming home from work all around the country, the bear awoke from his hibernation to a chorus of chants and horns with the joyous news.
The news, which was announced a week ago(at this point), can only be good for the future of Russia and it’s brand of football. The Russian league is slowly but surely becoming more recognizable throughout the Europe whether by selling off players to more popular teams or fairing well in European Club competition in 2005 and 2008 clinching the UEFA cup. Now with the right to host soccer’s marquee tournament and quite possibly the world’s biggest sporting event it will help the Russian youth and their future soccer.
