Sportivnaya (Russian: Спорти́вная) is a Moscow Metro station on the Sokolnicheskaya Line in Moscow, Russia. Named for the nearby Luzhniki sports complex, it opened in 1957. The architects were Nadezhda Bykova, I. Gokhar-Kharmandaryan, Ivan Taranov, and B. Cherepanov. Sportivnaya has white marble pylons with green marble accents and a ceiling of embossed asbestos-cement tiles rather than the usual plaster. The upper two floors of the three-story vestibule are home to the Moscow Metro Museum, which displays 70 years of Metro memorabilia.
