Kazan Arena Hosts First Football Match

Opened on time and on budget in 2013 to host the Universiade Games, the new stadium Kazan Arena hosted a football match for the first time on Sunday, 17 August.

Home to Russian Premier League team Rubin Kazan, the Populous designed venue is part of a city-wide regeneration program that will see the stadium and adjacent facilities host the FINA 2015 championships next year in Kazan.

In front of 38,000 fans on Sunday, Rubin Kazan played out an exciting one-all draw with Locomotiv Moscow to start the Russian premiership season.
