Metalurh Stadium Donetsk History
Metalurh Stadium first opened back in in 1952 after a construction period of two years which saw the previous ground completely demolished. Replaced with a multi-purpose sports arena complete with athletics track, Metalurh Donetsk’s home was also reconstructed back in 1997 when the club gained promotion to the Ukrainian Premier League, although the officially capacity still stands at a minimal 5,094.
Yet to host any European Club matches or Senior International Fixtures, Metalurh Stadium hosted three group matches of the 2009 youth Euro Championships. Attracting an average crowd of 940 fans per game, local residents got to check out future prospects belonging to England, Slovenia and Switzerland who all featured in two matches each in Group B.
For the 2015 season FC Metalurh will be following Shakhtar Donetsk’s precedent by playing their home fixtures at the Arena Lviv due to ongoing safety concerns in Donbass. The conflict between Pro-Russian separatists and Nationalists in the south-east of Ukraine flared up back in April when Russian annexed Crimera which had previously been regarded as a Ukrainian territory in an act condemned by NATO.
This setback has thrown plans to construct a new stadium into disarray as it is currently unknown when it will be safe to return to the region. The club had previously announced its intention to construct either a 17,500 – 24,000 state of the art modern stadium although work has yet to commence on the project.
