Even with reports of this year’s FIFA World Cup viewership taking a dip (when compared to 2014’s World Cup in Brazil) the streets in Moscow told a different story over the weekend, as soccer fans poured in to celebrate their home countries entered in the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Quickly approaching a week into the tournament, there has already been a number of defining moments: Russia’s 5 – 0 opener against Saudi Arabia, Mexico’s 1 – 0 victory over Germany (setting off an artificial earthquake), and Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick in a tied game against Spain, to name a few.

For our latest Streetsnaps feature, we focused on what the public wore on the streets of Moscow. Situated near Manezhnaya Square and Nikolskaya Street, a display of national colors was evident, and the use of the flag as an accessory was prevalent amongst all crowds. Interesting cross-cultural exchanges continue to happen each day, as many of the outlandishly-dressed individuals act as their country’s unofficial mascots — welcoming pictures, and commentary on upcoming matches. Have a click through the images above for a glimpse of what’s happening on the streets of Moscow during this year’s FIFA World Cup.
