Dynama (‘Dinamo’) football stadium


Legendary Dynama (‘Dinamo’) football stadium is a symbol of Belarusian football ... Built in 1934, it was reconstructed seven times and is now preparing for the eighth reconstruction. In 1980, the stadium hosted seven matches of the Olympic football tournament. The Olympic flame was lit at the stadium, with the torch having survived till now.

 Currently, the Dynama stadium is closed.  It may be of interest only from the architectural point of view. The arena will be reconstructed and the run tracks will be saved.  The President hopes that it will be able to host major athletics competitions. A new national football stadium will be built away from the city center in the 50th Anniversary of October Revolution park.

 As a result, there is a paradoxical situation in Minsk where Belarusian teams don’t have venues to play international matches. In 2013, Dinamo Minsk hosted European oppositions in Brest, while FC Minsk had to play host in Grodno. The most modern stadium in the country was opened in 2014 in Borisov. This stadium is the only one in the country of the 4th category according to the UEFA rating and it is the home arena of FC BATE Borisov as well as Team Belarus.
