1 July 2018

Russian women wearing elaborate bridal dresses took to the pitch in Kazan on Saturday (June 30) for a friendly soccer match intended to show their love for the sport. Wearing floor-length white dresses and running shoes, the women split up into teams of five and played 15-minute halves on gravel in front of a small crowd. The winning team was awarded a replica of the World Cup trophy, made out of flowers.
