Shakhtar vs Dynamo Kiev, May '10


In the central park in Donetsk, just across the road from the old Olympic Stadium in the city. Trams and trolleybuses, as well as regular buses, serve the stadium, with travel times between 15 and 40 minutes depending on your mode of transport.


The classic bowl design gives the stadium an amphitheater-style of atmosphere. The wide walkway leading up to the stadium will become a mass of colour reminiscent of Wembley Way during the finals.

Did You Know?

Beyonce performed a concert on her I Am... tour on the stadium's opening night in 2009, the American singer's first-ever show in Ukraine.
