The World Cup qualifier between Wales and Belarus was moved to Russia’s neutral venue.
Behind closed doors, the Group E match scheduled for September 5, will be played at Kazan’s Central Stadium.
Due to the sanctions against Minsk, teams from the United Kingdom or the European Union cannot enter Belarus via air.
With three points in their first two games, Wales is third in Group E behind Belgium and Czech Republic.
Three days following their trip to Russia, they will face Estonia at Cardiff.
Albert Stuivenberg, Arsenal assistant coach has resigned from his role as Wales assistant coach in order to concentrate on his responsibilities for the Premier League club.
Ryan Giggs appointed Stuivenberg to this role in 2017. The pair had previously worked at Manchester United.
While the Dutchman was still a part of Robert Page’s coaching team, he was also a deputy to Giggs for Wales as boss at the European Championships. They reached round 16.
