Additionally, Russian soprano Aida Garifullina will perform alongside Williams while Brazilian soccer star Ronaldo - a two time World Cup champion - is also present during the opening ceremony, according to Federation Internationale de Football Association.

Since March, Trump has sent US soccer officials three letters addressed to Federation Internationale de Football Association, assuring that World Cup organizations and its fans won't face restrictions coming to America for the World Cup in 2026 if their country qualifies, the United Bid, the group overseeing the US-Canada-Mexico application, said in a statement.
The World Cup opening ceremony will have a slightly different format compared to previous editions of the tournament.
One thing will remain the same, however: the underlying theme of celebrating not only football but also the host country, this time with a touching performance by one of Russia's most acclaimed young voices in Garifullina.
"I never imagined I would be part of this huge celebration, the World Cup, happening in my own country", says the soloist from the Vienna State Opera.
"I don't know if that can happen, but what I hope is that the national team does its best in the World Cup and that we can come home with the trophy".
