The Kaliningrad arena of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ was named Kaliningrad Stadium. There will be four matches of the group stage of the world championship hosted here.
The stadium is being built on the shore of the October Island, in close proximity to the embankment of the Staraya Pregolya River. Within half an hour walking distance is the island of Kneiphof, where the Cathedral, built in the first half of the 14th century, is located, along the grave of Immanuel Kant.
The five-storey building of the stadium with three tiers of open stands will have the shape of a rectangle with rounded edges. Construction is scheduled to be completed in November of 2017. For the duration of the championship, the capacity of the arena will be 35 thousand spectators, after the tournament it will be reduced to 25 thousand.
At the moment there are no public transport stops near the Kaliningrad Stadium (the nearest ones are require a 20 minute walk), access roads will be constructed in time for World Cup.
