FC Krasnodar's State-Of-The-Art Stadium Is Out Of This World

FC Krasnodar's State-Of-The-Art Stadium Is Out Of This World

FK Krasnodar's Roman Colosseum-inspired stadium is absolutely phenomenal, but it's not so much the exterior design that is the most impressive feature.

The Russian Premier League side, currently second in the division, were only formed in 2008 and are backed by Russian billionaire and local businessman Sergey Galitsky, who made his money through a supermarket chain.

WATCH: Krasnodar's Stadium, complete with the futuristic screen, is different gravy:

They went from the third tier to the top flight in next to no time and continued their meteoric rise when they moved into their brand new, carefully named Krasnodar Stadium, in October 2016 after three years of construction.

But Krasnodar's is anything but standard. It's a bit difficult to explain but the incredible 4700 sq m screen covers the top tiers on either side of the ground and it looks visually stunning, particularly with the pre-match introductions and goal alerts.

You'd think it would be one of the leading grounds to host World Cup games in a few months time but incredibly, the stadium has been overlooked for the big showpiece. As noted by the Daily Record in 2016, locals were outraged at the news and you can't blame them one bit.
