FC Rostov could leave World Cup stadium in row over rap concert

Russian Premier League club FC Rostov have threatened to leave their stadium in a row over a concert being played there.

The Rostov Arena, built for the World Cup, is hosting a concert by Russian rapper Basta on Sept. 29 -- just 11 days before Rostov are due to play Orenburg.

Concerts are one way in which the government are looking to pay off the large maintenance costs of last summer's tournament but Rostov have said the concert could damage the playing surface.

Rostov moved into the 45,000 capacity arena following the conclusion of the World Cup, with attendances far greater than the 10,000 capacity of their previous stadium, the Olimp-2.

They could return to the Olimp-2 if the issue is not resolved.
