Did you know Samara Arena has been designed to reflect the region's renowned aerospace sector?
The Caltex Socceroos’ second Group C match at the 2018 FIFA World Cup will be played at the venue against Denmark on June 21.
Here's all you need to know about the stadium, courtesy of FIFA.com.
In initial planning, Samara Arena was to have been built on a near-deserted island to the south of the city.
After much criticism from locals, it was relocated north and inside city limits.
Ground for the venue was broken in 2014.
The roof of the stadium is still under construction and work is ongoing on the venue's facade, playing surface and internal facilities.
It is due for completion early in 2018.
This should be one of the tournament's more eye-catching venues.
With its dome structure, metallic look and ability to light up at night, it's designed around a space theme to reflect the region's renowned aerospace sector.
It will even be called Cosmos Arena once the World Cup is over.
The city itself, which is at the confluence of the Samara and Volga rivers, should also be an enjoyable place to visit.
Location: Situated in the south-eastern part of European Russia, on the east bank of the Volga River.
Home Team: After the tournament, local side Krylia Sovetov will move there from their current home at Metallurg Stadium.
