The "Kazan Arena" stadium on the bank of Kazanka River is Russia’s third largest stadium, which seats 45,000 spectators. The territory of the stadium also contains fast food stands, sports bar, gym, and even three museums: about Kazan’s "Rubin" soccer club museum, retro-cars and the Kazan Arena itself. KidSpace - a children's playground and the Zarnitsa Science and Entertainment centre, are also housed here for the younger visitors. It’s hard to miss Europe’s largest digital screen plastered across the side of the stadium which can be spotted from two kilometres out. This screen broadcasts various sporting events – one of the first of which was the opening and closing of the 2013 Universiade Games. One of the biggest highlights that the stadium has seen in its time have been the opening and closing of the XXVII World Summer Universiade in 2013. In 2015, the stadium installed a large swimming pool for the FINA World Aquatics Championships. In 2017, the FIFA Confederations Cup was held here, and in 2018, the Kazan Arena eagerly awaits the World Cup matches that will be held here. The stadium has also been awarded 5 stars by the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA).
