History and description
The Dnipro Arena officially opened on 14 September 2008. Construction had started three years earlier in 2005.
The stadium was initially considered as a playing venue for the 2012 European Championships, but in the end failed to meet the capacity requirement of 33,000 seats. In 2009, the Dnipro Arena hosted the Ukrainian cup final.
