Four games of the group stage and one of the ⅛finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ will be held at the 45,000-seat Rostov Arena. It was built in 2012 in the Kirov district , between Levoberezhnaya Ulitsa and Grebnoy Canal. The arena will become the main element of a public recreation zone, which is planned to be organized in the left-bank part of the city.
The five-story complex of the stadium has the shape of a rectangle with rounded corners. Four three-level stands will be crowned by a wavy roof made of a tent membrane, with a rectangular cut above the football field. The completion of the construction is scheduled for December 2017. After the world championship it will be made the home field of the local Rostov football club.
