From June 14 to July 15, Russia will host the XXI FIFA world Cup 2018tm. Samara will be not just one of the cities that will host matches of the world championship, but also the place where already in the first part of the tournament will come just three teams from Latin America: Colombians, Costa Ricans and Uruguayans.

Uruguay stands out in particular in this list. In 1930, it was in the Uruguayan capital of Montevideo that the first ever FIFA world Cup was held. But back in 1928, the Uruguayan working team was the first South American team to be played by Soviet players. That year in Moscow, under the auspices of the Comintern, was an open football tournament of the all-Union Games, which some historians call "red world Cup". After this Games team Uruguay made a tour of the Volga, during which on the way from Nizhny Novgorod to Stalingrad and visited the latitude of Samara.

All this gave rise to the initiative of the Russian-Uruguayan Bering-Bellingshausen Institute for the study of the Americas, the Uruguayan football Association, the administration of the Centenario stadium, Montevideo city hall and the Russian Embassy in Uruguay to hold an action entitled "From the first to XXI" (it is about the XXI century and the XXI championship).

As a result, in early may, a sample of historical soil was removed from the lawn of the stadium "Sentenario", declared FIFA historical monument of world football. The soil was delivered to Russia on the eve of the recent St. Petersburg international economic forum. On the first day of the forum, a special container with soil from Montevideo was unpacked live on the TV channel "Russia-24" in the presence of delegates from Latin America and the Caribbean, the leadership of "Roscongress" and the Latin American Department of the Russian foreign Ministry.

The first city where a sample of this soil was delivered as part of the campaign, was Samara. This is an action to mark the long-term friendly relations between Russia and Uruguay, which once became the first Republic of Latin America to establish diplomatic relations with the Russian Empire, and the first in South America to establish diplomatic relations with the USSR.

- Not everyone knows, but the first world Cup was not just held in 1930 in the city of Montevideo, but also was won by Uruguay," - said the famous Russian TV presenter Sergey Brilev, Samara football player, a pupil of the training center for football "Krylia Sovetov " Nikita Kotin at the stadium "Samara Arena". - That is, this land with "Sentenario" brings good luck to the host country of the championship. In this case – Russia.
