Sportivnaya (Russian: Спортивная) is a station on the Frunzensko-Primorskaya Line of the Saint Petersburg Metro. The station was designed by Alexander Konstantinov, Alexander Bystrov and Andrey Larionov. It opened on 15 September 1997 as part of the Pravoberezhnaya Line. Sportivnaya is Russia's first double-decked station with cross-platform transfer.[citation needed] The floors are connected by two staircases, one of which is closed as of 2007. The lower floor serves the southbound trains while the upper floor serves the northbound ones. The upper floor is linked to the station's only exit, which leads to south-eastern side of Petrogradsky island. The lower floor will eventually house an entrance to a transfer corridor which would link the station to the exit on the north-eastern side of Vasilyeostrovsky island. That exit is currently[when?] under construction.

Nearby landmarks[edit]

The station is located in close proximity to the Petrovskiy Stadium, the home stadium of the city's home football team and Yubileyniy sports club. The station closes during and immediately after the team's home games, mostly due to apprehension over riot damage.[citation needed] The station is also located within walking distance of Peter and Paul Fortress.
