History and description

The Gazprom Arena, also known as Saint Petersburg Stadium, Zenit Arena, and Krestovsky Stadium, was built to serve as a new modern home of FC Zenit and one of the playing venues for the 2018 World Cup. It replaced the former Kirov Stadium. The stadium was finally opened in August 2016. Late 2005 saw the inception of planning for the new stadium, with construction works starting by the end of 2008. However, this project was dogged by delays, including a redesign to comply with FIFA requirements and fraud investigations. The stadium finally opened in August 2016.

In 2016, works finally sped up and the stadium was completed in April 2017. However, overall costs had soared past $1 billion, making it one of the most expensive stadiums ever built.

On 22 April 2017, the first official match was played at Saint Petersburg Stadium when Zenit hosted Ural for a league match.

The stadium has been designed by Japanese architecture firm Kisho Kurokawa and resembles the form of a spaceship. It has four masts that hold up the roof, and some similarities with the Japanese Toyota Stadium, which was designed by the same firm.

The stadium has a nominal capacity of 68,000, but was only able to hold 51,832 people for the World Cup due to renovations. It is located in the city of Saint Petersburg.

After the World Cup, the stadium took the sponsor name Gazprom Arena.

In 2021, the stadium was used as a playing venue for six first round group matches and the quarter final between Spain and Switzerland during the 2020 European Championships.

The Gazprom Arena has been selected to host the 2022 Champions League final.

How to get to the Gazprom Arena

The Gazprom Arena is located on the western tip of Krestovsky Island in St. Petersburg and lies about 7.5 kilometres away from Palace Square in St. Petersburg's city centre The nearest metro station is Krestovsky Ostrov on the purple line, which runs right through central St. Petersburg. It is still a 25-minute walk from the station to the stadium through Maritime Victory Park though.

Both buses take about the same amount of time to get to the stadium.

Eat, drink, and sleep near the Gazprom Arena

The stadium is easily accessible by public transportation and can be reached in a few minutes on foot. It is a peaceful and pleasant area on a nice day, which is also popular with the locals.
