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 amphitheatre-style of atmosphere. The wide walkway leading up to the stadium will become a mass of colour reminiscent of Wembley Way during the finals.
