Leipzig - Zentralstadion
A view of the Zentralstadion in Leipzig

Zentralstadion has been dubbed the "stadium within a stadium" as the new ground was built within the walls of the city's old 100,000 capacity venue.

The original arena, built in 1956, had fallen into disrepair in the 1990s.

While facilities have improved beyond recognition, the seating has diminished and it is one of the World Cup's smaller venues, holding just 38,000.

It is also the cheapest of the five new tournament stadia, built at 60m.
