Luzhniki Stadium, located to the south west of Moscow, has a capacity of 81,000, making it the largest stadium in Russia and one of the largest in Europe and the destination venue for the 2018 World Cup Final. Having been opened in 1956, the stadium is no stranger to holding large sporting events, having been the main stadium at the 1980 Olympic games, as well as hosting the UEFA Cup Final, UEFA Champions League Final and World Championships in Athletics.
Spartak Stadium, home to Russia’s most successful club FC Spartak Moscow, is located in the North West of the city and has a capacity of 45,000.
The stadia have chosen Tripleplay’s technology to deliver content to the fans, ensuring that they don’t miss a second of the action.
