On 20 April 2017, after almost 10 years of construction, St. Petersburg’s new Krestovsky Stadium finally opened its doors when Zenit beat FC Ural Yekaterinburg in spectacular fashion.

The new ground – which holds 68,134 spectators, almost thrice as much as the old Petrovsky Stadium – will not only host the Blue-White-Sky Blues’ home games but will also be one of the venues of the 2018 FIFA World Cup™, including a semi-final and the third-place play-off.

However, the Krestovsky already saw its first international games during the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup: Beside three group matches, it was venue for the final in which Germany beat Chile 1-0.
