Ritec ClearShield® Gives Fans Perfect View at New Moscow Stadium

The recently-opened VTB Arena is a multi-purpose stadium in Moscow, Russia, built on the site of the demolished Dynamo Moscow stadium. The stadium, under one roof, unites two arenas: the Lev Yashin Dynamo Central Stadium named after the club’s legendary goalkeeper with a 25,716 capacity during football matches and up to 33,000 for concerts, and the multi-functional VTB Indoor Arena with a maximum 14,000 capacity, depending on the configuration of the site. The complex also includes a shopping and entertainment centre, office buildings, apartment buildings and a 5-star hotel. The total investment is estimated to be US$1.5 billion.

The first football match at the venue took place on 26 May 2019. After the event, Bayerisches Haus, a specialist manufacturer of joinery products, was tasked to create a pitchside fence. Many different options were considered and in the end, a tempered glass partition was the way to go. Immediately, the question arose on how to protect the glass from staining and discolouration. This was where Ritec Systems Russia – a partner of Bayerisches Haus – came in.

As Ritec International’s official Marketing Partner for the region, Ritec Systems Russia were well placed to treat the 500m² glass partition on-site with award-winning ClearShield® ’non-stick’, durable easy-clean protection, upgrading it to ClearShield Eco-Glass®. The glass now resists dirt and staining so fans enjoy optimal clarity, and it will also be easier to clean and keep clean plus maintain a sparkling appearance for longer.

Vadim Derbenev, CEO of Ritec Services Russia, commented: “It was a great honour for my team and I to be involved in such a large-scale and prestigious project. Together with our partner Bayerisches Haus, we quickly completed the protection of glass with the ClearShield Eco-System®, it was turned around in just 3 days. I trust the fans and maintenance teams will be happy with the ClearShield-protected glass!”
