Visit to Kaliningrad Stadium

July 20, 2018, Kaliningrad

Vladimir Putin visited Kaliningrad Stadium built for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which hosted four group stage matches.

The President inspected the infrastructure of the sports facility and watched a football training session. He also had a brief conversation with volunteers that worked in Kaliningrad during the World Cup.

Kaliningrad Stadium, with a capacity of 35,000 spectators, is located on Oktyabrsky Island in the city centre. In the future it will be used by the local FC Baltika.

On July 14–20, the stadium will host the Play and Win project during which youth football club members will be invited to take part in workshops, excursions, and photo and autograph sessions with famous football coaches and players.
