Shocking footage has emerged showing women brawling in the snow in a secluded forest, ahead of the tournament.
The two gangs of women, who appear to be wearing team uniforms, sprint towards each other before throwing punches and kicks in the brutal scenes, broadcast on websites dedicated to Russian Ultras.
Bystanders are seen filming the brawl as women are left lying on the ground getting kicked.
The footage is similar to videos of male Ultras in training camps, where rival gangs meet in secret locations to brawl in a test of strength to see who is savage enough to be admitted into the violent mob.
It would be fun to see a mob of 150 women fighting drunk English
They are apparently organising themselves on Russian social network VKontakte (VK) and pledge to “unleash hell” during this years tournament.
Viewers posted comments like “don’t show it to the English” and “it would be fun to see a mob of 150 women fighting drunk English” underneath the videos.
On one VK group, ‘Russian Hooligans’, a group moderator posted: “We are starting operation ‘Mundial’. Our plan is already well underway.”
Another warned English fans: “They’d better go to the gym and prepare themselves somehow.”

The all-women gangs have names like Slavyanki Gang, Regional Girls and Siege Girls.
Martial arts expert Viktoria, who runs the Slavyanki Gang, said: “There’s no history of female gangs. This is our own initiative.
“I started in the Ultras then decided to organise a female group.
“To me it’s not only men who can do this job but girls too.
“This world can’t be without traumas and everyone knows there will be injuries.”
Neo-Nazi Olga Kuzkova, 22, who is part of a female mob that supports CSKA Moscow, said: “The first thing for us is our football team, its colours. Second, it is our coat of arms. We will fight to the end.”
The Ultras gained notoriety during the French Euro 2016 tournament, when the Russian national football team was slapped with a suspended disqualification after major fan violence.
Authorities have warned England fans that there is a high risk of clashes with Russian gangs if they travel to the World Cup.
Deputy chief constable Mark Roberts of the National Police Chiefs’ Council warned in February of violence.
He said: “The behaviour of Russian fans needs to be a factor in deciding whether to go there or not.”
The women got violent in the snow
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has advised all England fans travelling to Russia to prepare for hostility as a result of the increased tensions between the two countries following the poisoning on former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury.
In March, Labour’s Stephen Pinnock declared the World Cup should be postponed until 2019 and moved out of Russia after the poisoning.
Speaking to Radio 4’s Today programme, he said: “Putin has invested billions of roubles in the World Cup and sees it as an opportunity to showcase his regime to the world,” he told Radio 4’s Today programme.
FIFA was forced to release a statement saying it is confident in Russia’s security arrangements following a violent clash between Russian Ultras in Spain and Spanish football fans.
Ultras have caused havoc in football watches across Europe
The organisation said: “ saying it has “complete trust in the security arrangements and comprehensive security concept developed by the Russian authorities and the Local Organising Committee.
“As demonstrated during the FIFA Confederations Cup last year, Russia’s already high security standards have been adapted to meet the specific needs of such major sporting events.
“Naturally, FIFA is also in constant contact with all stakeholders regarding the ongoing risk assessment, which enables the implementation of overall preventive measures in cooperation with national and international enforcement authorities.”
