Description: Stadion Kaliningrad

This compromise concept for new Kaliningrad stadium was created in 2014. Its aim was to maximally facilitate construction (vast use of prefabs) in order to meet the 2017 FIFA deadline. Additionally, the stadium is expected to be one of the cheapest Russia will build for the tournament. This is possible thanks to FIFA’s approval for capacity decrease to 35,000 net.

The stadium will be built on October Island, where site was cleared long before that concept was even created. Before, there were two different visions for the site, but both of them proved too complex and expensive, leaving very little time to actually deliver a stadium.

Initial ideas saw the stadium as a catalyst for vast revitalization of the October Island, but in the short term only open public spaces will be created.
