Samara Stadium for the 2018 World Cup

“Samara-Arena” Location: Samara
Year of construction: 2017 (under construction)
Construction price: 369 million. $
Capacity: 44,918 spectators
Home team: Krylya Sovetov

Cosmos Arena Arena in the Samara region is one of the twelve playgrounds, on the green lawn that will host the main football event every four years in 2018. It is ultra-modern sports complex, which can accept the competition from the highest rank.



It is noteworthy that the location of the stadium in Samara to the World Cup in 2018 is definitely not the same as that which was approved by the committee of experts and approved by FIFA. Initially, the construction of this fundamental construction project was planned to take the land 27 – 40 hectares, located at the confluence of the Volga and Samara rivers. However, later on this idea was abandoned. Among the main reasons – high unduly financial costs for the necessary infrastructure of the stadium, and above all, the transport interchange and the public service supplies.

For this reason, the Samara stadium for the World Cup in 2018 moved to a completely different place. The different options for its placement are listed: Cow Island, a neighborhood of the plant. Maslennikov, and even a racecourse. But the final decision was made in favor of the district and village Sorokin Farms center of the area. Interestingly, the area reserved for the construction of a football stadium is growing: for example, with 240 hectares that has reached 930 hectares. To compare, the largest sports and entertainment facility in the area of Russia, and the Old World – “Luzhniki” – a total of 180 hectares. This requirement is even more modest than that of FIFA, since the World Cup says that it is enough 18 – 24 hectares.

Finally, the Samara stadium must be finished for the 2018 World Cup, is scheduled for December 2017. At the same time it has been designed for 45 thousand spectators and will meet all the international requirements for this type of football stadiums. There will be matches in the group stage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. It will have a green natural grass and will be equipped with high-tech equipment: drip irrigation systems and artificial heating. Construction estimated sports facility will be about $ 370 million.

The plan of the stadium in Samara for the World Cup in 2018 presupposes not only the green field with seats for fans, treadmill, banks and others, but also an entertainment center for children, gym, shopping and exhibition sites , fan shop and dance school.

Currently, the construction of the stadium goes according to plan. It will rise like a spherical dome 60 meters with a cut in the central part. Along the zone located in the periphery of the Sports City, later the construction will follow. So, after the 2018 FIFA World Cup in the development of the city project proposed the dismantling of structures of auxiliary buildings and the organization in their place of cultural entertainment and park area, as well as the construction of hotels, restaurants , sports facilities, research centers.

Thus, Cosmos Arena will not only become the center of football battles, but will also be a place of leisure for residents and visitors to Samara.
