Aleksandr Fetisov: Samara Arena is our new home and its readiness will depend on all of us

In anticipation for the first test match at Samara Arena, the Acting Vice-Governor of the Samara region Aleksandr Fetisov shared his expectations and impressions of the match Krylia Sovetov Fakel with www.KC-CAMAPA.ru:

On 28 April, Samara Arena stadium will host the first test match. Krylia Sovetov will play against Fakel.

According to security requirements, new stadiums should be loaded gradually. The first test match will be held at 30% of the stadium load - 15 thousand tickets were sold out.

First of all, tickets for our most dedicated supporters, the holders of season tickets, have been reserved. They dont need to buy tickets - its enough to show their season tickets at the entrance. This approach will be applied to all subsequent matches. On this occasion, I would like to thank those fans of FC Krylya Sovetov, who always support the team.

The remaining tickets, due to increased attention to the first match at a new arena, were sold out in five hours. All this once again shows that Samara is really a football city. And the new stadium is a real present for the numerous Samara fans.

In the near future we will publish the ticketing program for the match on 6 May, it is planned much more tickets on sale.

I have no doubt that this time we will set up a new attendance record not only in the FNL (now it amounts to 24500), but we will also update the record of the Samara Arena attendance in the XXI century.

Now the organizers of the matches are tasked to test all life support systems of the stadium and all services provided to fans. A lot of nuances are taken into account in the preparation work - from transport logistics and entrance control of spectators to the stadium, to the organization of storage facilities and navigation at the arena.

Landscaping works at the adjacent to the stadium territory are ongoing 24 hours a day: the asphalt work at the parking is being completed, the lighting and video surveillance have been installed, and installation of a fence and security checkpoints will be completed in the coming days. Work on preparation for the last mile is in the final stages of completion: engineering communications and fire-safety systems are 100% ready, the installation of an automatic irrigation and power supply system is being completed, numerical stelae and pavilions have been installed.

We kindly ask all citizens and guests of the city for understanding of the working moments that will accompany the test events. Samara Arena is our new home and its readiness to host the guests will depend on all of us.

Become part of our team, get ready to 2018 World Cup together with us!"
