As the 2014 World Cup comes to its end today, Russia is already gearing up its publicity for the 2018 tournament, which it will host in 11 cities around the massive country. This weekend, posters advertising the World Cup in each of those cities began circulating online, and they’re actually pretty great, save for Saint Petersburg’s, which looks like it was designed with clip art. But you can be the judge.
