With staff, players and supporters of the participating nations planning their trip to Russia next summer, we now know who will be taking to SISGrass at the finals!

SISGrass hybrid technology has been chosen for 6 out of the 12 World Cup final venues, including at the Luzhniki Stadium, host of the opening and final matches.

The opening game pits hosts Russia against Saudi Arabia on the 14th June, with 30 of the 32 World Cup nations playing on SISGrass during the group stages!

This is how the draw panned out for our SISGrass stadiums:
