Arenas of the Russian Premier League

For many sports advocates, a favorite team arena could be a home away from home. With all it's beauty and grandeur, many arenas and stadiums are not only known in the field of athletics, but are also prominent icons of a city.

Some people are more at home with the gargantuan stadiums. Ones that hold 80,000 or more, this is all you. You live for the roar of the crowd and the sight of the masses.

Others on the other hand, would prefer the atmosphere of a smaller, more intimate facility. You can never feel too far away from the pitch in these stadiums.

Mostly every football fan is familiar with the Emirates Stadium, Stamford Bridge, Anfield or Old Trafford.

But what of a more distant league? The Russian Premier League, home to two of the past four UEFA Cup Champions.

Russians have a wide variety of stadiums in the league, ranging from several old vintage Soviet yards to ultra-modern facilities. But one thing is for certain, they lack nothing in grandeur.

The stadium featured is the Lizhniki Stadium in Moscow, which holds over 70,000. It is currently home to several Moscow clubs for now and also the Russian national team.
