World Cup

The most obvious place to start has to be the World Cup. Whether you’re traveling or staying that’s what everyone will be doing or watching this summer. All of us here are excited but are feeling slight trepidation at the possibility of the Egypt National Team playing sans Mohamed Salah. We’re still going to be cheering with the fanaticism both for Egypt and our back up teams. In-house favorites here at Enterprise include the usual greats Germany, Brazil, and Argentina. Once upon a time, Spain was on that list. The tournament kicks off in two weeks on 14 June with a match between Saudi Arabia and host country Russia. Egypt’s first match will see the national team face off against Uruguay on Friday, 15 June at 2:00pm CLT. You can catch the full match schedule here.

For those lucky enough to go there, beware of all the shadiness that comes with eating out over there. Reuters has found that a number of restaurants across Russia have been boosting their credentials with fake positive reviews. Also worth looking at: Egypt’s Foreign Ministry has set up an information page for Egyptian fans heading to Russia.
