    oh but i think they have a 17hour flight as it goes via another country? cant see a direct..

    Tell your son to go on ]http//ww….uk and search for flights. All he does is enter when and where he wants to go and the site will check many ticket agents and he can try and find the lowest/best flight there.

    bus...

    Get a flight from London Stansted to Riga, Latvia,(using ]Ryanair), from there it is possible to get to Moscow for about £20 one way (an 8-hour long overnight train or bus).

    Flights is only one of many problems. First you'll need a match ticket, under no circumstances buy from an local Moscovite, our Russian mafia friends have been busy producing thousands of very good fake tickets. So if you buy locally from a tout don't expect to get in and don't expect much sympathy fro the Russian Police.
    The second problem is accomodation, there are only 30,000 hotel berths available in Moscow and these are all sold out. Many fans have suggested sleeping rough overnight and leaving next morning, the match kicks off at 10.45 local time so whilst local transport may be running, forget anything going outside of Moscow. The Russian authorities say that anyone sleeping rough will be arrested if they are lucky (killed and robbed by local gangs if unlucky) Of course being arrested by the Police may be a blessing as at least you'll then get accomodation!
    The third problem is a Visa. The Russians still haven't said that Visa Waivers will be issued, so you could have a match ticket, hotel room and flight but you'll not get out of the airport.
    Sorry to be so negative but before buying flights you may need to look at a bigger picture.
    This, of course, leads us to think why they chose Moscow as a venue for the final in the first place!

    hotel rooms in mosco £500 night cheapest outside are £100+, not many people know this but mosco is the most exspensive city in the world now.

    The russian authorities have apparently offered to 'relax' Visa rules for travelling supporters. One of the ideas being banded around is no Visa required for a persona carrying a valid passport + a match ticket,

    Look out for further announcements on the 1st of may.
