Description:
Donbass Arena () is a stadium with a natural grass pitch in Donetsk, Ukraine that opened on 29 August, 2009. The facility is located in the center of the city, in the Lenin Comsomol park. With a capacity of 50,000 spectators, the Stadium hosts FC Shakhtar Donetsk matches and will host some matches in Euro 2012. It meets the requirements for a UEFA Elite 5-star Stadium rating.

The initial estimated cost of the project was USD 250m. USD 30m has been allocated to set up a recreational park around the Stadium. The final cost of the project will reach USD 400m.

Construction and design

The construction was launched in 2006. The general contractor is a Turkish company ENKA. The Stadium was completed and opened in 2009.

Donbass Arena was designed by ArupSport, who have also designed the City of Manchester Stadium (Manchester, England); Allianz Arena (Munich, Germany); and the Beijing National Stadium (Beijing, China). An exceptional engineering solution – the soaring roof effect – will make the Stadium resemble a flying saucer. The oval shape and the glazed façade ensure a memorable outlook. The Stadium is located near Regional Sport Complex Olimpiyskiy creating an elegant architectural ensemble. The roof of the Stadium slopes from north to south matching the landscape and contributing to the natural lighting and airing of the pitch. The external lighting makes the Stadium shine at night.
