The stadium roof in Ekaterinburg, which will host the matches of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, will be equipped with a unique water intake and rainwater drainage system, currently used only at sports venues in London. This was stated by the acting governor of the Sverdlovsk region Evgeny Kuyvashev during the presentation of the arena reconstruction project at the Innoprom international industrial exhibition by the Sinara group of companies.
According to the Sinara head of the public relations center Natalia Levitskaya, the water intake system on the roof will allow avoiding leaks during heavy rains.
Ekaterinburg will host four matches of the 2018 World Cup.
