MOSCOW, June 8. /TASS/. Police will be providing escort for all referees at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, which is due to kick off next week in Russia, Head of Marketing Event Management FIFA World Cup Jay Neuhaus said on Thursday.

The FIFA official said that each referee working at the prestigious football tournament in Russia would be escorted by law enforcers on the way from hotels to the stadiums and back, adding that the procedure of escort would be eventually defined by the Russian Interior Ministry.

The FIFA Confederations Cup, dubbed the ‘Tournament of Champions,’ is also viewed by experts as just a rehearsal, with only one year to go to the FIFA World Cup.

This year’s tournament will be held between June 17 and July 2 at four stadiums in Russia and they are Spartak Stadium in Moscow, St. Petersburg Stadium, Fisht Stadium in Sochi and the Kazan Arena in Kazan.

Participants in the 2017 Confederations Cup are hosts Russia, 2014 FIFA World Cup Champions Germany, 2015 Copa America Champions Chile, 2015 AFC Asian Cup Champion Australia, 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup winners Mexico, 2016 UEFA Euro Cup champs Portugal, OFC (Oceania Football Confederation) Nations Cup victors New Zealand and 2017 CAF Africa Cup of Nations Champion Cameroon.
