It will be possible to use it not only for football competitions, but also, for example, for equestrian sports, track athletics - anything, " said the head of the Nizhny Novgorod Region, Valery Shantsev.

The governor also said that the construction of the unique stadium by Russian standards would give a great impetus to the development of regional sports.
