Frankfurt - Commerzbank Arena
Work began on upgrading Eintracht Frankfurt's famous Waldstadion in 2002 and lasted three years.
The result is the stunning, light and airy Commerzbank Arena which features a transparent, retractable roof supported by a webbed grid of steel wires.
The ground was given a dry-run for the World Cup at the 2005 Confederations Cup when it was chosen as the venue for the final between Brazil and Argentina.
The "new" Waldstadion will host five matches, including a quarter-final.
