Hanover - AWD Arena
A view of the AWD Arena in Hanover

The AWD Arena, formerly known as the Niedersachsenstadion, will host four group games and a second-round match.

Hannover 96's home since 1959, having opened five years earlier, the venue has been renovated for the World Cup at a cost of 43m.

The relic of the old, bowl-shaped ground has been built up on all sides and an overhanging roof has been added.

The 50,000 capacity for Bundesliga matches will be reduced to 39,000 during the World Cup.

FIXTURES (all times BST)

Mon 12 June (2000): Italy v Ghana (Gp E)
Fri 16 June (2000): Mexico v Angola (Gp D)
Tue 20 June (1500): Costa Rica v Poland (Gp A)
Fri 23 June (2000): Switzerland v South Korea (Gp G)
Tue 27 June (2000): Spain v France (2nd round)

DID YOU KNOW?

Iconic or eyesore? With the old stadium went four huge, crane-like concrete floodlight pylons in each corner of the ground which were nicknamed "toothbrushes" by locals.
