AUDIT BOARD SCRUTINY: The construction of Zenit Arena, which is to host 2018 World Cup matches and 2017 Confederations Cup games, came under scrutiny of the Audit Chamber earlier this year, when it turned out that the project’s cost had gone from 6.7B rubles ($202M) to 34.9B rubles ($1B). The Audit Chamber said that the costs were deliberately exaggerated. The city construction committee’s spokesperson told SBG Global that the schedule, under which the construction is to be completed in late '15 and put into operation in '16, is to be observed. However, the Audit Chamber earlier expressed doubt that this deadline is realistic.
