FIFA President Gianni Infantino hailed the 2017 Confederations Cup football championship which was held in Russia as a big success.

“Wonderful games were played. The attendance of the stadiums was good – almost 38 thousand viewers on average for the games,” he said as cited by RIA Novosti.

Infantino also thanked Russia and its citizens for the well-organized event. The FIFA head especially noted the good atmosphere during the championship.

“We heard before the Confederations Cup about the problems that nobody cares about football in Russia. But the games were beautiful and the atmosphere was good too. There were no hooligans, no incidents, no racism. Everything went smoothly,” Infantino said.

On June 17, the FIFA Confederations Cup kicked off in Russia and will continue until Sunday. Four Russian cities are hosting the matches: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan and Sochi.
