Luzhniki Stadium is Russia's national stadium, located in the country's capital city, Moscow. With a capacity of more than 80,000, it is the largest hosting ground for World Cup 2018. It will be here that Saudi Arabia and Russia face off in the opening fixture on Thursday, 14 June. Rebuilding work for the facility started in 2013, and one of the most challenging elements of the construction project was retaining the facade of the stadium, which has successfully been preserved. Inside, the entire arena has been refurbished: the athletics track was removed to move the seats closer to the field, and two extra tiers have been added. The stadium will host the final football match of World Cup 2018.
