The 2018 World Cup is here and the tournament's matches will be played in 12 arenas across 11 cities.

Russia is the largest country on the planet, making traveling between games more difficult compared to World Cups of the past.

Andrew Beaton at the Wall Street Journal estimated the total distance traveled for each team in the tournament based on their base camp and the locations of their three matches of the group stage.

As you'll see, some teams will have fairly reasonable travel demands to make it from match to match, while some others will have a far tougher time when it comes to getting to the stadium on gameday.
