Russian officials worry locusts could ruin World Cup
LINK

quote:

Pyotr Chekmarev, head of the agriculture ministry’s crop farming department, said the pitches could be targeted by locusts during the summer months.

“The whole world is coming here. Football fields are green. Locusts love it where there is lots of green. How would they not come to the place where football is being played?“

Chekmarev said around a million hectares of land in southern Russia was infested with locusts, including around the World Cup host city of Volgograd.

I'd be ok with this. If we can't be in it, might as well have fricking locusts and frogs falling out of the sky.
