Almaty Central Stadium was said to be inspired by Russia’s original Luzhniki stadium although it’s definitely not as big.

Featuring an athletics track around the perimeter of the pitch, the stadium is home to FC Kairat and previously the Kazakhstan national football team until the Astana Arena opened in 2009.
