The total spectator capacity of the stadium is up to 81,000. The Arena is transformable and can be used for various cultural, entertainment and sports events. The project includes a play field, audience facilities, administrative, office, retail areas in compliance with the requirements for holding final games of the World Cup at the highest level.
