The President of Russia and the FIFA President looked around the sports and entertainment sections of the park and visited the pavilion that houses the World Cup, the main trophy awarded to the winners of the FIFA World Cup.

Vladimir Putin and Gianni Infantino also opened a friendly match of football stars, including goalkeeper Iker Casillas and defender Carles Puyol from the Spanish team, which won the 2010 World Cup, and former Russian players Alexei Smertin and Dmitry Bulykin, against young players from FC Totem, including children from an orphanage in Krasnoyarsk.

The coaches of the mixed teams were Ronaldo (Brazil, 1994 and 2002 world champion) and Lothar Matthaeus (Germany, 1990 world champion).

The traveling park of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia, which has toured the cup host cities, reached Moscow on June 21 and will be open to the public until the end of the World Cup. The programme includes workshops, autograph sessions with Russian and foreign football stars and open-air games. Fans will be able to take part in multimedia quizzes and try their hand at football attractions.
