The Krestovsky stadium of Zenit football club has been designed by the architecture firm Kisho Kurokawa, and seems to resemble the shape of a spaceship with the roof being held up by four masts. Four first round group matches were played here, a quarter final, a semi final and then the match for third place.
It has taken around ten years to complete the arena in time for the 2018 World Cup Football. The venue was also one of the four stadiums in use for the 2017 FIFA Confederation’s Cup. Krestovsky Stadium, finally completed in early 2017, is one of the world’s most expensive football grounds. It has excellent facilities and is a fitting venue to host the opening games. With a capacity of 68,134 seats it’s also now the largest active football stadium in the Russian Premier League.
