Central dynamo stadium

Central Dynamo Stadium was built in 1928 and was able to hold 36,540 people. It was the home ground for Dynamo Moscow. Unlike other sports venues in the Soviet Union, this carried special name of Central to denote its importance. Until the construction of the Central Lenin Stadium in 1956, the Central Dynamo Stadium was the central sports facility in Moscow. The stadium was one of the venues of the football tournament of the 1980 Summer Olympics.


A new stadium is being built on the same spot and will be named VTB Arena.

Dynamo Stadium, designed by the architects Arkadiy Langman and Lazar Cherikover, dates from 1928. In 1938 the Dinamo station of the Moscow Metro opened nearby. An athletics track circles the football field, but is no longer in use. A monument to Lev Yashin (1929-1990) stands at the stadium's north entrance and VIP boxes are positioned above the entrances to the north and south stands. In 2008 the stadium celebrated its 80-year anniversary.

Michael Jackson brought his HIStory World Tour to Dynamo Stadium in 1996 and Deep Purple performed there the same year.

Dynamo Stadium closed for demolition in 2008, with the farewell match played on November 22, 2008. The stadium's main tenant, FC Dynamo Moscow, moved to Arena Khimki, a stadium in the Moscow suburb of Khimki.
