The grand arena at the Luzhniki sports complex, which will be hosting the opening, semi-finals and final match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, will be connected to Moscow’s permanent heating system by this summer. That’s according to the city’s official website www.mos.ru.

Start-up and testing working are in their final phase, with the stadium expected to be fully connected to the heating system by June.

PJSC MOESK (Moscow United Electric Grid Company) is in charge of the power system at the arena. As of today, all of the temporary sites within the complex, built for the World Cup, already have electricity.

The installation and construction work on the sewage and water systems has been completed. Sewer pump stations are still being added, and the reconstruction of the 3.5 km-long municipal drainage pipe is under way. Waterproofing has been done, floor slabs and concrete pillars have been replaced and fortified, and new technical cable structures have been installed. Also, 16 ventilation shafts have been built above the ground, with 19 fans and 16 pumps installed and fitted with lighting.
