What will be the time difference between Russia and Spain during the 2018 World Cup ?
Russia is one hour ahead of Spain , although it is not entirely accurate according to what part of the Russian territory one is in.
In this way, it can also be considered that the schedule of the 2018 World Cup of Russia goes from 12 noon to 9 pm , from the start of the first phase on June 14 until its completion on June 28 , passing to two slots (16 hours and 20 hours) in the eighth and quarterfinals, one in the semifinals (16 hours) and another in the final dispute: 17 hours.
Depending on the area of Russia where each venue is located, the time difference also varies, although it coincides in nine of the 12 cities participating in the 2018 World Cup.
That is to say, there will be an hour of local difference with Spain (GMT + 3) in the matches played in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Volgograd, Sochi, Kazan, Saransk, Nizhny Novgorod and Rostov.
In contrast, there will be one more local time in Samara (GMT + 4), two in Yekaterinburg (GMT + 5) and at the same time in Kaliningrad (GMT + 2).
The three matches of the Spanish national team of the first phase are held in Sochi (Portugal, Friday 15 June), Kazan (Iran, Wednesday 20 June) and Kaliningrad (Morocco, Monday 25 June), all of them at 8:00 p.m. in Spain.
