For Spartak Moscow that’s the very first stadium in history. One of Russia’s most famous sides had been attempting to build a ground to call their own since 1994, but for over a decade Spartak only tasted failure.
As billionaire Leonid Fedun decided to relocate the club to north-western Tushino district, the dream became more realistic. On August 2014 president Vladimir Putin officially opened the stadium, while the first game announced was the friendly against Crvena Zvezda Belgrade (Sept 5).
Design created by AECOM Russia and Dexter Moren Associates exploits the club crest to create the stadium’s key aesthetic feature. The stands are wrapped with scales, each shaped like the crest and coloured either red or white, accordingly to club colours. Only the main grandstand is different, completely covered with glass. Also, a large screen was mounted onto the façade in the east.
Inside the double-tiered stands accommodate 45,000 people. This means an increase from the original 35,000 planned back in 2006, but may be further expanded if need be by 4,000. This solution is expected to be used for games of the 2018 World Cup
