Located in the heart of the Olympic village, the Fisht Olympic Stadium will be used to stage the opening ceremony on 7th February 2014 in Russia. It has also be used for the closing ceremony and the medal ceremonies throughout the games.

The Texlon® ETFE roof of the Fisht Olympic Stadium has been created by Vector Foiltec. The vision was for the roof to give the building an appearance of snowy peaks, ensuring that it sits in harmony with the backdrop of Caucasus Mountains in the north. The openness of the stadium also provides stunning views of the Black Sea in the south.

Texlon® ETFE has an extremely long design life ideal for the planned legacy of Sochi following the Olympic Games including the Paralympics 2014 and the FIFA World Cup 2018.
