Donbass Arena & Old Shakhtar Stadium (WSPE-789)


Product Description


Donetsk, Ukraine


Donbass Arena is a stadium with a natural grass pitch in Donetsk, Ukraine that opened on 29 August, 2009. The facility is located in the center of the city, in the Lenin Comsomol park. With a capacity of 50,000 spectators, the Stadium hosts FC Shakhtar Donetsk matches and will host some matches in Euro 2012. It meets the requirements for an UEFA Elite 5-star Stadium rating.

The Donbass arena was completed ahead of schedule, but the grand opening was delayed until 29 August 2009 to coincide with the Ukrainian holiday of Miners Day, as well as Donetsk City day. Donetsk is in the Donbass region, a mining region, and the date was chosen for its symbolism. The prime tenants of the facility are named Shakhtar Donetsk ("Donetsk Coal Miners").

Donbass arena was included in the official bidding project submitted by Poland and Ukraine for hosting UEFA Euro 2012. The stadium will host group stage games and one quarter-final and one semi-final game. Unlike most new stadiums being built in Poland and Ukraine, Donbass arena was not initially intended for that venue.

Shakhtar Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Donetsk, Ukraine. It is currently used mostly for football matches. The stadium holds 31,718 people. The stadium is currently used by FC Shakhtar Donetsk reserves and FC Metalurh Donetsk for the European competition . The stadium was built in 1936 with the most recent reconstruction in 2000.
