Ekaterinburg’s Tsentralny Stadium, the largest sports facility in the capital of the Urals and home of the local FC Ural, is temporarily getting a new name, Ekaterinburg Arena, for the duration of the 2018 World Cup. 

Tsentralny Stadium was built in 1953-1957. Its Soviet neoclassical façade is on the cultural heritage list. The eastern and western entrance gates are porticos with columns, adorned with statues of a milling machine operator, a skier, a marksman, a footballer, a female athlete with a torch, and a steel founder. The ticket office buildings outside the entrances are shaped as pylons. Yekaterinburg Arena is sited in the central Verkh-Isetskiy District, between Ulitsa Repina and Ulitsa Pirogova, across from the 1860 John the Baptist Cathedral on the other side of Ulitsa Repina.  The historical look of the building was preserved intact during the reconstruction. In fact, the architecture of the new parts of the building’s façade is intentionally neutral. They are only a backdrop, underscoring the merit of the historical parts. Following the reconstruction, completed in December 2017, the stadium now has a seating capacity of 35,000. It will be reduced to 23,000 post-World Cup.
