The Yekaterinburg Arena which will host 2018 World Cup games was officially opened on Sunday (April 15) and saw a second test match.

The game was held between ‘Ural’ and ‘Spartak’ club teams with almost full stands.

The first test game was held at the stadium on April 1 with around 18,000 spectators attending it.

The capacity of the Yekaterinburg Arena is now around 35,000, but after the World Cup it will be reduced to 23,000.

Four World Cup matches are scheduled to take place there.

Russia is hosting the World Cup from June 14 to July 15 in 12 venues spread across 11 cities including Moscow, St Petersburg, Kazan and Sochi.

The country showcased four of its 12 World Cup venues during last year’s Confederations Cup, a two-week tournament that featured the home country, defending world champions Germany and the champions from FIFA’s regional confederations.
