Description:
The new Sochi Olympic Stadium will be built in the new Sochi Olympic Park. It will be located within walking distance of the Olympic Village and the capacity of the stadium will be 40,000. The Olympic Stadium, designed like a shell to recall the glories of Fabergé art, will provide a seaside setting for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the 2014 Winter Olympics and Paralympics., sportbusiness.com, April 19, 2007

The stadium walls and roof will be one continuous glass surface designed to reflect sunlight off the sea during the day. The bowl opens to the north, allowing for a direct view of the Krasnaya Polyana Mountains, and the upper deck is open to the south, allowing for a view of the Black Sea. The stadium is designed by Populous and Buro Happold. The final design was unveiled in September 2009.

It will cost $63.5 million to build the venue, including the temporary works for the Olympics. The stadium should open in 2012. The facility will serve as a training centre and venue for the Russian Football National Team after the Games.

Sochi Olympic Stadium is also one of the key stadiums of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
