The Central Stadium will be known as the Ekaterinburg Stadium during the course of the 2018 World Cup. It is one of the older host venues at the tournament as it was first built in 1957 before undergoing a couple of renovations since.
There was a large scale reconstruction of the venue from 2015 to 2017 in preparation for the World Cup, which will see the stadium boast a capacity of 35,000 during the tournament before being reduced to 25.000 after the event.
The Ekaterinburg Stadium will host four matches during the group stages of the World Cup.
