New track at Petrovsky Stadium is almost ready

Specialists have started the last stage of the track installation at Petrovsky Stadium – laying the surface on the half circles behind the goals.

Considering that the work must be done only at certain temperatures, a huge tent has been set up right in front of the 13th sector. This tent makes it possible to work no matter what the air temperature. Furthermore, according to the workers, the current sunny weather makes it easier to install the track, and installation will be complete by Zenit`s next home match. There are areas for long jump and high jump behind the goals.

A super-modern Sportflex SuperX track is being installed at Petrovsky. This surface has a number of advantages, and is the best track surface in the world. The International Association of Athletics Federations approves this surface for competitions of any level.
