Volgograd Arena is located in Central Park on the bank of the Volga River at the foot of the Mamayev Kurgan war memorial. It has a capacity of 45,000.
Volgograd Arena was built on the site of the Central Stadium that was opened in 1962.
The façade and rooftop patterns embody the local wickerwork tradition and aspects of a WWII Victory Day firework display.
The stadium can be accessed via a 123-meter wide stairway with side ramps for disabled access.
A new pedestrian embankment has been constructed near Volgograd Arena.
It is the home arena for FC Rotor.
