History and description

Gazprom Arena was built to serve as the new home of FC Zenit and as one of the playing venues for the 2018 World Cup. The arena was built in place of the former Kirov Stadium. The final cost of the stadium was £300m. Planning for the new stadium began late 2005 and first construction works started by the end of 2008. The stadium was initially planned to be completed in 2009 but works were hampered by a series of delays, including a redesign to comply with FIFA requirements and fraud investigations. The final cost of the stadium was £300 million.

Work finally sped up in 2016 and the stadium was completed in April 2017. However, overall costs had soared past $1 billion, which made it one of the most expensive stadiums ever built.

The first official match of the 2017 season was played on 22 April when Zenit hosted Ural in a league match.

The stadium, designed by Japanese architecture firm Kisho Kurokawa, has a form that resembles the shape of a spaceship with the roof held up by four masts. It shares some similarities with the Japanese Toyota Stadium, which was designed by the same firm.

The Saint Petersburg Stadium was one of the venues of the 2018 World Cup in Russia. It hosted four first round group matches, a quarter final, the semi final between France and Belgium (1-0), and the match for third place between Belgium and England (2-0).

After the World Cup, the stadium took the sponsor name Gazprom Arena.

In 2021, the stadium was used as a playing venue during a major tournament when it hosted six first round group matches and the quarter final between Spain and Switzerland (1-1).

The Gazprom Arena has been selected to host the 2022 Champions League final.

How to get to the Gazprom Arena

The Gazprom Arena is located on the western tip of Krestovsky Island, in the north-west of Saint Petersburg. It is about 7.5 kilometers away from Palace Square, in the city center of Saint Petersburg.

It is still a 25-minute walk from the station to the stadium through Maritime Victory Park, despite it being on the other side of the park from the stadium.

Bus 10 and 25 stop closer to the stadium, but they still take fifteen minutes to walk there. Bus 10 runs through central St. Petersburg while bus 25 runs through northern parts of St. Petersburg.
