Stadium History

The simple, universal shape resembles a flying saucer. Roof structure is sloped from the North to the South to let more sunlight in and allow for better circulation, but still the club needs to use lamps to increase pitch quality. That may also be because of the stands which are very high (divided into 3 tiers, not common with stadia of this size). Glass dominates the facades and at night illumination allows the ground to glow strongly. Ironically, the colours are not those of Shakhtar, but local rivals, Metalurh. Or that’s how some want to see it, because blue and yellow are also the national colours after all. Large park of some 25ha has been created rapidly when the stadium was being finished.

The stadium has been unused and closed to the public since May 2014, due to the War in Donbas.
