Ekaterinburg Arena is the new name for the reconstructed Central Stadium, and is home to local team FC Ural. The reconstruction of the stadium has involved retaining the historic façade, although a roof has been added, and temporary stands will be used for the World Cup to ensure the stadium meets FIFA’s requirements for matches.
Ekaterinburg Arena will host four group stage matches during the World Cup. After the tournament, the capacity will be reduced and the stadium will be the home of FC Ural.
