Mordovia Arena was built on the flood plain of the River Insar, between Ulitsa Volgogradskaya and Sevastopolskaya, within comfortable walking distance from the centre of Saransk.
The stadium is oval in shape, with a high two-story basement. The walls and the roof form a solid shell of perforated steel panels, painted in bright colours. This shell is elevated above the basement, creating the impression of lightness, a hovering effect. At a distance, the building resembles an air balloon, ready to take off. The architects had meant the shape and coloration of the shell of Mordovia Arena to evoke warmth, the sun, hospitality, and a warm welcome. For perfect visibility, no spectator seat is farther than 90m away from the middle of the pitch. The distance between any corner of the pitch and the opposite spectator stall does not exceed 190m.
Following the World Cup, Mordovia Arena will become the home stadium of the local FC Mordovia.
