Cologne - RheinEnergieStadion

The RheinEnergieStadion has been rebuilt stand-by-stand in time for the World Cup and the finished article is a compact, 46,000 capacity arena.

The stands are almost on top of the pitch and a far-cry from the former incarnation which had a running track.

The rebuilding process cost 75m over the course of two years until the ground opened its doors in March 2004.

A further two years on, FC Koln's ground will host four group matches and one second-round knockout meeting.
