Spain said on Friday that they have chosen Krasnodar, not far from the Black Sea, as their base for the World Cup which starts on June 14. “The national team has decided on the south of Russia and more precisely Krasnodar for their headquarters from which they will radiate to the main cities,” said a statement from the Spanish football federation. The players will use the training facilities of Krasnodar Academy, the local Russian Premier League club. Spain will kick off in Group B against Portugal on June 15 in Sochi, 270kms south of Krasnodar. They then face Iran in Kazan, 1,700kms to the north, on June 20 and travel the same distance to play Morocco in Kaliningrad, on June 25.
