Building of stadium started in 2000 and in 2002 the new arena was already opened.
Uniqueness of the stadium is in its construction. Four ferroconcrete pylons (each of them resembles russian lеtter «Л») holding up the roof. This technology is used in bridge building usually. But roof, especially of such a big size, had never been hung up before.
RZD Arena is a purely football stadium. There are no tracks here, only deep ditch between pitch and tribunes.
Double level tribunes are divided on 4 sides: Nord, South, Ost and West. In additition there are VIP boxes between top and lower circles.
