History lesson Situated on the banks of the River Don, this is another brand new facility and one that – like several of its peers – has suffered a few false starts. Eventually construction began towards the end of 2014 and the finishing touches should be complete by Christmas, although this is seven months after the originally mooted completion date.

Star attraction According to the blurb, Rostov Arena will be notable for its roof – which apparently imitates the meanderings of the river. There are attractive views over that and the south-west Russian city.
