See the incredible World Cup 2018 stadium which has a stand OUTSIDE the ground

WORLD CUP fans will be in for a treat in Ekaterinburg… when they sit out outside the ground to watch a match.

The Arena stadium, located east of the Urals, has a temporary stand in place to accommodate for the influx of fans at Russia 2018.

Originally holding just 27,000, the circular venue has been the focus of much renovation in recent years.

And while much of it is permanent, the standout feature is just that – a stand outside!

The ground underwent major works between 2007 and 2011 but still did not meet Fifa standards to stage matches.

Now it will boast a capacity of 45,000 when it is finished in time for the start of the world’s biggest football showcase.

The stadium is the home of FC Ural in the Russian Premier League.

But it will stage four group games before being downsized once more after the World Cup.
