Kaliningrad Stadium is to be built for Russia 2018 on Oktyabrsky Island, right in the heart of Kaliningrad. The selection of Kaliningrad as a host city has prompted the local authorities to develop the island, which for many centuries has been a wilderness, left largely untouched. After the 2018 World Cup, a new residential development will be built around the stadium, with parks, quays and embankments alongside the Pregola river.
Kaliningrad Stadium will be multi-purpose. As well as football matches, it will host other sporting events and concerts.
After Russia 2018, FC Baltika Kaliningrad will play its home games at the stadium.
Host City: Kaliningrad
Project: New stadium
Location: Oktyabrsky Island

* The number above indicates the anticipated gross capacity for this stadium in its finished state. Please note that the stadium's official capacity for the 2018 FIFA World Cup will be lower due to FIFA World Cup specific requirements and constructions.
