Chengdu will first be the home to Group B on 11 and 14 September, featuring United States, DPR Korea, Nigeria and Sverige. This group has already been dubbed China 2007’s “Group of Death”. Chengdu will then host England and Argentina (Group A) on 18 September.



Chengdu is the capital of the province Sichuan and has a population of more than 10 million people. The Chengdu Sports Center Stadium seats 38,269 people and it is located in the heart of the city.
