Soccer fever hits the whole world, and the new attraction of Belgrade - 2018 FIFA World Cup Square, shakes the Serbian capital. All matches of the FIFA World Cup Belgraders can watch at Nikola Pasic Square on a big video beam for a month. After the Eagles' baptism of fire and the victory over Costa Rica, we expect a nervous Friday, 22nd June at 20:00, when the football teams of Serbia and Switzerland will meet on the field in Kaliningrad. Both teams have broken the pressure of the Latinos with the victory over Costa Rica and the draw with the Brazilians, so the match will be a treat. And Belgrade caterers will be in charge of treats on 2018 FIFA World Cup Square. Elementary school pupils will play non-competitive matches in the city center during the Championship.
