Spain will be based in Krasnodar when they arrive in Russia for the World Cup next summer

The FC Krasnodar Academy, just south of Russia, will host Julen Lopetegui and his squad for the tournament in June.

Lopetegui's men will have two compressed-air supported arenas with artificial turf at their disposal to provide for training during the cold season, twelve natural grass pitches and three synthetic ones.

Also within the territory of the Academy there is a stadium with a roofed tribune that can accommodate three thousand supporters. This is the venue for the home matches of FC Krasnodar U-21 team.
