  • Beautiful tour with many secrets of Kazan Arena. Gone by the way to the Mand. The powers were photographed with the UEFA ball (well, in general, someone cool played them). We felt both a team member and a VIP persons. I recommend to everyone-especially football fans:)

  • Great stadium and good staff
  • FC Rubin Kazan is a Russian association football club based in the city of Kazan. Founded in 1958, Rubin played its first-ever top flight season in 2003. It has remained there ever since, winning the Russian Premier League championship in 2008 and 2009. The club also won the 2011–12 Russian Cup and has been a regular in European competition in recent seasons. FC Rubin Kazan was previously called Iskra from 1958 to 1964 and Rubin-TAN from 1992 to 1993. The name Rubin means "Ruby". Having never played in the Soviet Top League, the football club joined the Russian First Division in 1992 and fell to the Russian Second Division in 1994. The mayor of Kazan at the time, Kamil Iskhakov, purchased the team in 1996. Rubin won the Second Division in 1997 and was promoted back to the First Division the following season. The next four seasons, the team consistently finished above 8th place. Finally winning the title in 2002, Rubin was promoted to the Russian Premier League for the first time in 2003. Rubin finished third in its debut season to qualify for the UEFA Cup. The team faced a temporary setback in the 2004 campaign finishing in 10th place, but 2005 saw them finish fourth, again qualifying the team for the UEFA Cup.
