RAW: Putin and FIFA’s Infantino launch volunteer campaign for World Cup

Russian President Vladimir Putin and FIFA President Gianni Infantino took part in the ceremony to open the volunteer recruitment campaign for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The two figures were joined on stage by footballing legends Carles Puyol and Soviet goalkeeper Rinat Dasayev. Each guest signed a ball which was then handed over to volunteers.

The recruitment process is due to finish by the end of 2016 and is expected to attract around 5,000 volunteers for the 2017 Confederations Cup as well as 15,000 volunteers for the 2018 World Cup.
