FIFA 2018 Football World Cup is approaching fast and here's a cover to share.
Sent by a Postcrossing Member, adding a postcard inside - Although I personally like written and stamped postcards, but still a nice cover is not bad to get ;-)

  • The left stamp was issued for IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship, held in Russia in 2016. Canada won the gold medal in the championship in the final match held on 22 May 2016, beating Finland. Russia won the bronze medal. The stamp shows LAIKA - the official mascot of the championship.
  • The right stamp was issued in 2015 showing one of the stadiums in which FIFA 2018 Football World Cup matches are to take place. It was part of a set of 4 stamps issued in 2015. This particular stamp shows Kazan Arena in Kazan.
