"According to our calculations, about 25,000 Mexican fans will be coming. Or maybe even more," Norma Bertha Pensado Moreno told reporters.
She added that those Mexican supporters, who attended Russia’s 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, had promoted the idea of visiting Russia for the World Cup.
"Russia has become a very attractive destination for Mexican tourists. Last year during the Confederations Cup about 2,000 people came from Mexico [to Russia]. They had a very positive experience of staying in Russia. Without a doubt, those who have already visited your country, have begun to promote and advertise the idea of a trip to Russia," the ambassador said.
Russia will host its first FIFA World Cup from June 14 to July 15. The matches will take place in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Saransk, Rostov-on-Don, Yekaterinburg, and Sochi.
