If There Isn’t A Catastrophic Disaster At Russia’s New World Cup Stadium It’ll Be A Miracle

See that stadium in the photo above? That is the brand new Ekaterinburg Arena in Ekaterinburg, Russia which is where the 2018 World Cup will take place. Pretty nice looking place, huh?

And it is, for a 27,000 seat arena. Problem is, FIFA requires there to be more seats than that because 27,000 people just isn’t enough to line their pockets with a sufficient amount of rubles. You see that opening there way at the end of the stadium? Yeah, it wasn’t there before. To make room for more seats, which you can see in the photo, they cut open the stadium and added a temporary grandstand to raise the capacity to 45,000. A very, very frightening temporary grandstand.
