Given the size of the country, the matches will be played in cities hundreds of kilometers apart, with a great diversity of weather. 

For instance, the average daily maximum temperature in Moscow in June is 21.7°C and in July 23.1°C, with a respective total 75 mm and 94 mm of rainfall,  according to WMO’s World Weather Information Service.
