"Luzhniki stadium"

The Luzhniki stadium was first opened in 1956. This stadium hosted seven USSR Spartakiads, seven different world championships, two youth festivals and the 1980 Summer Olympics. Currently the arena is preparing to host the main games of the World Cup: the opening match, semi-final and final games.

Ahead of the World Cup, the stadium experienced a second major reconstruction in its history. Running tracks have disappeared, the slope of the stands has changed, the roof of the stadium was turned into a giant screen, and the maximum capacity has increased to 81,000 spectators.
