Saint Petersburg Stadium

History
Saint Petersburg's new, super-modern stadium is built on the site of the Kirov Stadium on Krestovsky Island, which, in its day, was one of the country's largest stadiums, with a capacity of 110,000. The tender to build Saint Petersburg Stadium was won by the renowned Japanese architect Kisho Kurosawa. The stadium hosted the Opening Match and Final of the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup.

Design
The architect's vision for Saint Petersburg Stadium was of a spaceship that has landed on the shores of the Gulf of Finland. The seven-storey building is 79 metres high. Technologically, Saint Petersburg Stadium is one of the world's most modern arenas. Equipped with a retractable roof and a sliding pitch, it's able to host any type of event at any time of year - even in winter, the temperature inside the stadium is 15 degrees Celsius.

Legacy
The stadium is home to Zenit St. Petersburg. It is able to host many different types of events, from concerts and shows to competitions in a whole range of sports. In 2020, the arena will host three matches in the group stage of Euro 2020, as well as one of the competition's quarter-finals.
