share on:

With the 2018 FIFA World Cup right around the corner, all of Russia’s state-of-the-art stadiums are in place

This year’s host stadium will be Moscow’s 81,000 capacity Luzhniki, which has been around since the 1950s.

There are so many new stadiums built form ground up, in fact, that the home grounds of some of Russia’s biggest clubs, such as CSKA Moscow’s VEB Arena (opened in 2016) and Dynamo Moscow’s VTB Arena (opened this year), have not been included.

However, there are plenty of newer, more modern designs that will see action in this summer’s tournament.
