History and description

However, it quickly became known as the home of ice hockey. The Ekaterinburg Arena was built between 1953 and 1957 and initially served as a multi-sport arena. However, it quickly became known as the home of ice hockey. It currently hosts multiple hockey leagues and events each year. Central Stadium, with a capacity of 27,000 people, remained largely unchanged in the next few decades until plans were made in the mid 2000s to extensively redevelop the stadium. Works started in 2007, and, after multiple delays, were completed in 2011. The make-over gave the stadium an extensive overhaul, but kept the athletics track and capacity at 27,000 people.

Russia was awarded the 2018 World Cup and soon after Yekaterinburg was shortlisted as one of the host cities for the tournament which was confirmed in 2012.

Unfortunately, recent renovations to Central Stadium didn't meet FIFA standards and so new redevelopment plans had to be made. The external facade would have to be preserved, but otherwise the entire interior had to get rebuilt, increasing capacity to 45,000 seats.

After many doubts were cast on the city's ability to host the event, construction on the project began in spring of 2015.

The Ekaterinburg Arena reopened on 1 April 2018 with a football match between FC Ural and Rubin Kazan. It can only accommodate a limited number of 20,000 spectators.

This year, the Ekaterinburg Arena will host four first round group games of the World Cup. After the World Cup, it will have a capacity of 35,000 seats- which means that the temporary seating behind both goals will be removed.
