Mopti
Mopti is often called the 'Venice of Mali'.

Its location on the Niger River means that during the rainy season it is completely surrounded by water.

The city is a major tourist destination with its scenic harbour full of boats heading to Timbuktu.

The newly-built stadium is in the old neighbourhood of Taikiri, close to the city's Grand Mosque.
