Earlier, the Russian Interior Ministry advised that the World Cup hosting regions should restrict sales of alcohol near the sports venues on match days.

"On the days of the FIFA World Cup matches and on the days preceding them a total ban will be imposed on retail sales and consumption of alcohol in glass bottles," the region's government said in a statement published on its official website on Monday.

According to the statement, similar restrictions will be in place in Samara's central Kuybyshev Square where the FIFA Fan Fest will be located.

The Samara Arena is one of the 12 stadiums set to host matches of the FIFA World Cup that will be held in Russia for the first time from June 14 to July 15. Four group-stage matches, including the clash between hosts Russia and Uruguay, a round of 16 game and a quarter-final will be played at Samara's 45,000-seater stadium.
