The venue represents a collapsible structure with the possibility to remove and mount the Palace in other Russian cities.

The project of the Fisht Olympic Stadium provides a unique feature: while visiting the sporting events supporters can simultaneously observe the sea surface in the south and the mountains on the north. The structure has at its core a durable transparent film material and its shape resembles a rocky cliff, which harmoniously integrates into the Caucasus Mountains panorama. Besides arranging a maximum safety for supporters, athletes and staff, ecological factors that may have impact on the environment were taken into account during construction works. After 2014 Olympics, the Fisht Olympic Stadium will host matches of Russia national football team, public entertainment events and will be utilized as a sports training base.
