 Despite its recent history, Kazan Arena has already earned international renown. It was built for the 2013 Summer Universiade, and hosted the opening and closing ceremonies of the Universiade. Two years later, Kazan Arena was made the prime venue of the aquatic sports World Cup. Kazan Arena happens to be the world’s only football stadium where 12 world records were set in swimming.  

Kazan Arena is now the home of the local FC Rubin, which hosts its national championship and Euro Cup matches here.

In a bird’s eye view, Kazan Arena’s shape is reminiscent of a water lily. The stadium’s roof rests on eight pivot points. This makes the structure appear ethereal, while being sturdy and reliable. The spans of the main longitudinal girder, each more than 120 metres long, and the translucent roof consoles, lend a touch of originality to the stadium’s architecture.
