Vitaliy Mutko: Yekaterinburg World Cup stadium to fit 35,000 supporters

September 29, 2014. The FIFA executive committee supported the idea of allowing Yekaterinburg and Kaliningrad construct or reconstruct stadiums that would be big enough for 35,000 supporters in time for the World Cup 2018, R-Sport refers to Russian Sports Minister Vitaliy Mutko as saying.

‘The executive committee agreed that two cities, namely, Kaliningrad and Yekaterinburg, adopted a different concept in terms of the stadium capacity. It was agreed today that they would be allowed to construct or reconstruct stadiums fit for 35,000 people,’ Mutko said.

The world football championship will be held in twelve stadiums in eleven Russian cities in June and July 2018.
