Description: Rostov Arena

This concept for Rostov-on-Don’s new stadium resulted from large cost-cutting efforts done on the initial vision for 2018 World Cup. As a result nearly nothing of the previous draft was saved, while cost still skyrocketed to overall RUB 18.5 billion at the time of this vision’s release.

The stadium is being built on the southern bank of Don, so called left bank (thus the unofficial name Stadion LevBerDon, from Russian words for Left Bank of Don). Preparatory works on site began in 2012, but progress was extremely slow as design was being worked on. Finally piling and foundation works were launched in late 2014. By mid-2015 11,044 piles were installed and half the entire concrete (92,000 cubic meters) was poured to create the superstructure.

Eventual capacity is expected to be around 45,000, of which 5,000 is to be temporary. The entire stadium, including outer wrap, multimedia screen incorporated into the façade and other facilities are expected to be ready in December 2017.
