July 23, 2014. Deputy Mayor of Yekaterinburg for Capital Construction and Land Use Sergey Myamin spoke on television about the steps Kalininetz Sports Complex takes to become one of the reserve training sites for the World Cup 2018 teams, the city council's press service says.

'Kalininetz gets a lot of local visitors, including families with children, yet the facility itself needs some restoration. In preparation for the world football championship of 2018, the city authorities are planning to coordinate a full-scale restoration of the complex and to put up a number of new buildings,' Myamin said on air of Open Studio Yekaterinburg (Channel 41-Domashny).

For one, a facility with an ice rink, a small hockey pitch, a strength training gym will be built in 2016; an indoor sports palace and a track-and-field stadium with nine 400-meter circle-shaped racing tracks, nine 110-meter hurdling tracks, two shot-put and discus and hammer throwing sectors, one javelin throwing sector, a water reservoir for steeple-chase, two jumping pits, two pole jumping sectors, a 500-seat stand, a training site that meets all of the FIFA requirements, and another indoor sports palace (a football pitch with a natural lawn and all the accompanying infrastructure) will appear later on.

'Since we are talking about a large area, and since the infrastructure and engineering grids have become worn out over the years, this will cost between 700m RUR and 1bn RUR, yet the federal authorities promised to cover all the expenses,' Myamin stressed.
