Construction began in 2015 on the 45,000-seat Stadium Nizhny Novgorod. After the World Cup, the arena will be used as a multimodal sports complex and the home of the local football club, Olimpiets.  

The stadium adjoins a federal architectural landmark – the 1880 St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral of the New Fairground. The stadium’s proximity to historical buildings imposed certain requirements on the new arena’s exterior design. In the architects’ vision, the stadium was supposed to have a subdued yet recognizable look. Its uniqueness was to flow from its associations with the Volga, local nature, and images representing water and wind. 

The arena stands on the Spit, or Strelka, from where an enchanting view opens up on the confluence of the Oka and the Volga.
