World Cup 2018 opening ceremony performers, start time and how to watch

North American trio beats Morocco to host 2026 World Cup

A spokeswoman for football's world governing body said: "We are extremely happy to have been able to gather such a high-level line-up of artists for the opening ceremony, which for the first time and for the benefit of the fans in the stadium and watching on TV will take place just half an hour before kick-off and will focus on musical performances".

The Opening Ceremony will be produced by Russia's Channel One and the "creative concept" will be developed by Felix Mikhailov, who has directed other World Cup events including the preliminary and main draw.

Russian Federation will host the World Cup four years after it spent a record $50 billion to host the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

Smith will be performing the World Cup's anthem alongside Kosovan singer Era Istrefi and Nicky Jam. In the 1990s, Williams was a part of the pop group "Take That".

Here is an XI of the stars heading to Russian Federation this summer who received the highest average ratings across the season. "I've done a lot in my career, and opening the FIFA World Cup to 80,000 football fans in the stadium and many millions all over the world is a boyhood dream", Williams said in a statement.
