Moscow authorities plan to embed free public transport passes to tickets for the FIFA 2018 matches, the head of the city's sports and tourism department said.

"...I can say that the project of creating an all-in-one travel card, so that the spectators could use public transport for free, is pending. A special microchip will be integrated to tickets for matches, which will be active on the routes of competitions," Nikolai Goulyayev said in an interview, as quoted by the Moscow authorities' portal.

The project will be finished in April 2017. The official added that areas close to the stadiums will have enough parking space for fans and FIFA client groups.

Moscow will host eight matches of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, including the final. Ticket holders will have a right to enter Russia without a visa.
