Yekaterinburg's Central Stadium to be completely demolished
Many area activists have begun collecting signatures for petitions aimed at halting the historic stadium's upcoming demolition, which originally called for the removal of the entire Central Stadium, except for two walls facing Repin and Pirogov street, Ura.ru reports.
"Honestly, I don't know what to do with this happiness," former Sverdlovsk regional governor Alexander Misharin said, according to Ura.ru. "Even if the subject of two walls already facing protest rallies, what will they do when they discover that it was not the worst option."
FIFA regulations require that its host stadium hold at least 45,000 spectators, a requirement that the current stadium cannot satisfy. The regional government is expected to make a final decision as to the final construction plans for Central Stadium by the end of the week.
