Description: Kazan Arena


The new stadium in Kazan's eastern district of Savinovo was planned as the city won the organisation of Universiade 2013. The design was delivered by Populous, who had to modify it significantly since early drawings, because it showed too much resemblence with another stadium by the office – never built Maze Stadium in Lisburn.

Significant alterations that contributed to the increase were those done to the face. Instead of light membrane covering the stadium received outer cladding of glass (east) and the largest HD screen of its kind (4,030 sqm covering the west).

Ground level sees various spaces for commercial, medical and cultural use, while access to the stands is possible from the vast promenade atop these spaces. Inside are two tiers of seating with 72 luxurious skyboxes.
