Description: Stadion Krasnodar
Already in 2011 the second largest club of the city, FK Krasnodar, employed renowned GMP Architekten to design their new stadium. It was even announced at an early stage, that a retractable roof is part of the scheme. Eventually this wasn't included, though.
Early renderings were shown in 2012, while preparations and foundation works started on site in early 2013. Its stands are to accommodate 36,000 people in a football-only layout despite the ground's oval bowl.
The stadium was thought to become a training venue during 2018 World Cup, but its chances went slim after Krasnodar was eliminated as host city.
New stadium: Meet the Ferrari of football stadia
Usually we don’t go for cheap titles like this one, but it’s actually true. Classy, very expensive and quite literally luxurious when compared with other stadia, meet Stadion Krasnodar.
Russia: Krasnodar stadium with highest certification
The latest Russian stadium has just received highest praise from the domestic football federation. Just in time, opening is planned later this week!
Russia: Opening confirmed for Krasnodar stadium
Finally we know when the FC Krasnodar stadium opens. First the Russian national team will face Costa Rica, then the host club will fight against Schalke 04.
Russia: Further delay for Krasnodar stadium
Which time is it? We lost count, so let’s just confirm: FC Krasnodar won’t begin their 2016/17 campaign in the new 33,000-seat stadium. They’ll play at Kuban to later return the favour.
Russia: FK Krasnodar stadium late once again
Owner of the club admits his new stadium will never pay for itself. Sergey Galitsky spent a fortune, but finally for the 2016/17 season his new “coliseum” will be open.
Russia: Krasnodar Coliseum opening postponed until spring
It will be one of Russia’s most amazing stadiums, but “will” is the key word. Planned opening in November proved impossible and a new inauguration date had to be selected.
Russia: Krasnodar’s new stadium by year end?
Billionaire Sergey Galitsky hopes to open the new “Colosseum” in November. And no, he doesn’t really like calling it a Colosseum despite commonly agreed resemblance.
Russia: FK Krasnodar await playing field
Already in October the new stadium in Krasnodar will be handed over. To keep the deadline, preparations for turf installation are already ongoing.
New construction: FK Krasnodar Stadion
Foundations laid, cranes crowding around the oval bowl – now the Progress will be visible almost on a daily basis. Thanks to the support of New-Krasnodar.ru we will now be able to show you the construction photos, while our Russian partners will provide more materials for those interested in knowing the project better.
New designs: Krasnodar and Vladikavkaz
These may not host the 2018 World Cup, perhaps even as training venues, but they're going to make a very decent addition to the Premier Liga, once ready. One is already in progress, the other awaits for construction to begin.
