Nevertheless, the new stadium will still be a nice change for Mordovia fans.

New CSKA Arena – the “highest” stadium in the world


Moscow - CSKA ArenaMoscow - CSKA Arena10.10.2016: The highest stadium in the world – this is one of the ways to describe the new CSKA Moscow stadium. The unique feature of the stadium is the 142-metre skyscraper, in which you can find a hotel and offices and which stands in the south-west corner of the stadium. Its slightly twisted design is reminiscent of the UEFA Cup – a trophy the CSKA Moscow team won in 2005. This victory inspired the club to think of building a new stadium for 30,000 spectators.
