Mordovia Arena, World Cup Venue, Saransk, Moscow
Mordovia Arena is a football stadium currently under construction in Saransk, Mordovia, Russia in time for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. It will also host FC Mordovia Saransk of the Russian Premier League, replacing Start Stadium. It will have a capacity of 44,442 spectators
Saransk has become the most unexpected host city of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The local football is underdeveloped, and the Mordovian team is an outsider of the second football league in Russia. We hope that appearance of such a football project in the city can heighten interest in football of both ordinary fans and the local club potential sponsors.
Mordovia Arena will house the group stage matches: Peru – Denmark, Colombia – Japan, Iran – Portugal and Panama – Tunisia.
