Assemblers began installing an information screen at the Luzhniki Stadium, which will host the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ opening match as well as the finals, according to the press service of Moscow’s Urban Development and Construction Complex.

The display is being installed in the northern part of the arena.

The display’s metal frames were installed earlier, each one weighing 13,5 tons and secured under the stadium’s roof.

The number of seats in the stadium will increase from 78,000 to 81,000. The form of the stands will also change, they will be as close to the football field as possible. The number of entrances will also increase – from 13 to 16.
