Looks like plenty of flights are still available and the prices aren’t exorbitant.

As for visa/tickets, maybe this helps?

Personally knowing the Russian customs and border control i would not rsk it.
I went with a valid visa in May to visit fanily and still got pulled up at border control as the photo i had in my passport and the one on my visa was 8 years apart and they thougt i5bwas suspect.
Risky budiness travelling without valid docs.

Visa is not an issue. Anyone with any ticket number can apply for a Fanpass ID which works as a visa for this month.

This can be any ticket number, used or to be used and there is no limit to how many ID's you can request.

Match tickets are not hard to come by when you are out there, a lot of locals selling them on now by all accounts.

Where did you get tickets for the final? Are they being released on the FIFA website?

No worries.

There's 4 of us that have agreed to try and get match tickets / flights if England get there. Just wondering if refreshing the FIFA page is the best way!

Sounds as though it is easy enough to get tickets on the ground as a lot of locals are selling/transferring them.

I have two separate sets of mates out there and both groups (4-6 per group) have ALL secured their Semi Final AND Final tickets already.

They also can't stop going on about what an amazing trip it is. Country is far nicer than they imagined (as are the locals) and it has been an epic and thoroughly well organised p!ss up by all accounts.
