Russia 2018: Two stadiums of the World Cup downsized
Kaliningrad and Yekaterinburg will see both their stadiums have capacity of 35,000 instead of 45,000 indicated previously. FIFA approved the change, which means a completely new design and trouble for Yekaterinburg.
New design: Centralnyj Stadion, Yekaterinburg
It’s hard to keep track, since this is already the third concept for Yekaterinburg. This one completely discards what was proposed last year and goes in the direction of the first idea, from 2010. But as it evolves, something fresh is found as well.
