Club: FC Dnipro | Opening: 2008 | Capacity: 31,003
History and description
The Dnipro Arena officially opened on the 14th of September 2008. Construction had started three years earlier in 2005.
The stadium was initially considered as a playing venue for Euro 2012, but in the end failed to meet the capacity requirement of 33,000 seats. In 2009, the Dnipro Arena hosted the Ukrainian cup final.
The Dnipro Arena is located in central Dnipropetrovsk. The stadium lies only a few blocks south of the principal Karla Marxa avenue. From the avenue, or the city’s central square, it is no more than 15 minutes walking.
It is further from Dnipropetrovsk’s main railway station, which lies at the western end of Karla Marxa avenue, approximately 2.5 kilometres away, or a good 30 minutes walking.
Tram 4 and 5 can bring you from the railway station to the stadium. One can catch tram 5 just south of the railway station, while tram 4 leaves a block north-west from the station. Tram 1, which runs over Karla Marxa avenue, is an alternative.
There are several daily trains that connect Dnipropetrovsk with other major Ukrainian cities.
Address: Khersonskaya st. 7, Dnipropetrovsk (л. Херсонская, 7, г. Днепропетровск)
