Kaliningrad Stadium

History Kaliningrad Stadium was 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.

Design Kaliningrad Stadium is a multi-purpose venue. As well as football matches, it will host other sporting events and concerts.

Legacy After Russia 2018, FC Baltika Kaliningrad will play its home games at the stadium.
