$21bn cost of 2018 FIFA World Cup preparation

It is a huge challenge for Russian officials to develop nine stadiums in four years. The Zenit Stadium in St. Petersburg is expected to be operational no earlier than mid-2016, even though its construction was launched in 2007. In 2014 there are plans to launch the construction of new 45,000-seater stadiums in Kaliningrad, Rostov-on-Don, Volgograd, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, and Saransk, as well as the reconstruction of Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium and the Tsentralny Stadium in Yekaterinburg.
The construction of a new stadium in Saransk commenced in 2010, however, with only the initial stage of the project completed and areas beneath the stands also having seen some development, little progress has been made. In the first half of 2014, all the design and planning documentation for stadiums in the pipeline will be filed for approval from GlavGosExpertise.
