World Cup Fever: Back to Moscow. Finishing up in style at Moscow’s legendary Luzhniki Stadium

Coming full circle, our football fanatics are back in Moscow, where they check out the newly renovated 81,000-seat Luzhniki Stadium. Built in the 1950s, this storied venue, which has seen the Olympic Games and a UEFA Champions League final, will now host the opening and final matches of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The friends then splurge their Sochi casino winnings on Moscow’s finest hotel, an evening limo ride, and drinks at a trendy nightclub. Sadly, the next morning, they’re broke, and a depressed Diego must relocate to a $15/night hostel. But Vitaly and Mukha have a surprise in store to cheer him up. In the evening, they treat him to dinner in a restaurant on the 85th floor with a breathtaking view. It’s the perfect place for the friends to reminisce about their adventures and say their goodbyes.
