The World Touring Car Championship will visit Russia for the first time next year after confirming a date at Moscow Raceway
A provisional calendar, featuring an expanded 13 rounds, was announced by the FIA on Friday, with the Moscow date scheduled for June 8-9.
Other changes on the calendar include the return of the Porto street event, which takes its usual biennial spot from the Algarve circuit, and a movement of the opening round from Italy to Spain.
Spain's event, which has taken place at Valencia since 2005, has not been given a definitive venue.
Marrakech has also been left off the calendar, although the third round is scheduled to take place in an unspecified country on April 6-7.
The WTCC also confirmed that Eurosport Events will continue as its promoter until at least the end of 2017.
Eurosport Events has promoted the series since it was re-established in 2005.
FIA president Jean Todt said: "The FIA is delighted to carry on this cooperation with Eurosport Events that has proved so fruitful so far.
"During these eight years it has been promoting the World Touring Car Championship, Eurosport Events put in a huge effort to make the championship growing in competition on the track and popularity worldwide.
"The renewal of the agreement will further enhance the cooperation among the parties to make the championship even stronger."
