They were determined that fans will be enraged with the idea of staying on board a cruise ship but they will have swift access to stadiums and fan zones. Charges were not confirmed although £600 are charged per person on an MSC cruise.

Other lodging solutions such as studio and regular apartments, fan villages with tourist attractions with the city have also been acknowledged by the committee.
