very nice one good location, retractable roof and pitch. Although having the pitch unprotected during a russian winter because there's a convention in the arena seems a bit ridiculous.

it looks bigger than the stated capacity, more like 80000 seats, i wonder whether it will sell out for many games

Judging from the grass bank surround (lower right pic), I'd say it was on the site of the current Communist-era Kirov Stadium, which is on the banks of the Neva.





This is the only picture I can find that was taken from outside the ground.



I think the big, grassy banks around the perimeter are the giveaway.

It's definitely the same site - you can see the rowing lake in the bottom right rendering as well as this aerial of the Kirov:
