Time left for the first
match at "Dinamo"
Tuesday, the delegates of the European Stadium and Safety Management Association (ESSMA) studied the progress of the VTB Arena Park project during their tour around the stadiums of Moscow and St. Petersburg.
The project employees explained the guests from a dozen of different countries what was happening at the construction site that day and outlined the plans for the nearest future. Then, in spite of the endless rain, the ESSMA delegates had a one-hour tour around the Sports Complex – they visited the Stadium and the Arena, saw the historical Western Tribune, entered a VIP suite, and took photos at the future football field. The guests were excited by the accomplishments of the restauration experts who worked their magic on Sergey Merkurov’s bas-reliefs that had been previously decorating the Northern and Southern Tribunes of the Stadium.
According to Dimitri Huygen, General Director of ESSMA, “VTB Arena – Central Stadium “Dynamo” will become a new milestone and inspiring example for the designers of similar multifunctional facilities around the world.”
The representatives of VTB Arena Park and ESSMA, who have several years of productive joint work in the past, agreed to develop and improve the future cooperation, which is especially important at the stage of the project transition from construction to operation.
