Russia's World Cup Stadiums

This year Russia are hosting the 21st FIFA World Cup. Twelve stadiums will be used in the competition. Five of these will be entirely new stadiums. One, the Volgograd Arena, will be entirely rebuilt and one, the Central Stadium in Yekaterinburg, is being upgraded for the tournament.

All but one of the stadiums are in European Russia, west of the Ural Mountains, so that the competing teams won't have to travel too far between venues. You can view the locations of each of the twelve stadiums on a new interactive Esri map. The FIFA World Cup 2018 Stadium Guide - Russia is a map showing the exact locations of all twelve football stadiums which will be used in this summer's World Cup.

The twelve stadiums are shown using satellite imagery. For many of the stadiums this satellite imagery shows the venues under construction. However the Saint Petersburg Stadium can be viewed on the map as a 3d model. The Saint Petersburg Stadium is the second largest stadium being used in the Russia World Cup and will host one of the semi-finals and the third place play-off game.
