History and description

When Rinat Akhmetov became president of Shakhtar Donetsk in 1996, he recognised the need for a new stadium and began investing in the club to raise its profile. As a result, a new Donbass Arena was completed in 2009, replacing the old Shakhtyor Stadium. The new arena came about after Shakhtar's first successes on the pitch, following which a new stadium was deemed to be the next logical step. The construction of the Donbass Arena started in 2006 and was completed in 2009. The total budget of the project was US$400 million.

The Donbass Arena officially opened on August 29, 2009 with a grand event that included a concert by pop star Beyoncé. The first football match was a Ukrainian league match played one month later between Shakhtar Donetsk and Obolon Kyiv (4-0).

The stadium sustained significant damage during the regional armed conflict in 2014 and is currently not operational. Shakhtar have moved away to play their home games in Kharkiv's Metalist Stadium, in north-eastern Ukraine.

How to get to the Donbass Arena

The Donbass Arena is located in the central Voroshylovskyi district, tucked against the north edge of the city center. It is within walking distance of most city center locations. The stadium lies within Leninskogo Komsomolo park on its northern side. The main railway station is situated further north, approximately 6 km. Tram line 1 brings you in 20-25 minutes to the stadium. Get off at stop Prospekt Mira or take trolleybus line 2 and get off at Bely Lebed shopping mall.

The buses that serve the stadium are line 13, 14, 16, 46a, 46?, 73?, and 77. Your stop is Krytiy Rynok.

Address: 189e Chelyuskintsev Street, Donetsk 83048

Eat, drink, and sleep near the Donbass Arena

The Donbass Arena is conveniently located near the centre of Donetsk. There are a few shopping centres close by, and Donetsk's main drag, Artema Street, runs only a few blocks away to the west. Follow Artema Street south and you will come across various bars and restaurants. The stadium is surrounded by several parks and is in close proximity to the Kalmius reservoir, which makes the area particularly pleasant on a summer day.

There are several hotels located nearly next to the stadium. The Victoria Hotel Center and Shakhtar Plaza are two of the options.

There are more hotels in different price categories in the southern region of Donetsk?s city centre. Click here to see all hotels in the southern region of Donetsk.

I went to the Donbass to see United play in the champions in early October. The ground was great and tickets were only £7! It is not an easy place to get to, but the locals are friendly and it was a great trip.
