*History *Rostov Arena is situated on the left bank of the Don River. Buoyed by its selection as a host city, Rostov-on-Don will be able to expand in size by developing its left bank, where the local tourism facilities and restaurants have traditionally attracted locals and visitors alike.

*Design *Rostov Arena's original design blends harmoniously into the picturesque landscape. The shape of the arena's roof imitates the meanderings of the Don River. The varying heights of the stands allow spectators to savour not only what is happening on the pitch, but also to enjoy views of Rostov-on-Don. From the left bank of the Don, the city looks particularly beautiful.

*Legacy *FC Rostov, the 2014 Russian Cup winners, will play its home games at the stadium.
