Dnipro-Arena (Ukrainian: Дніпро-Арена) is a football stadium in Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine. It is mostly for football matches and hosts the homes matches of FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk. The stadium has a capacity of 31,003 people. It replaced Dnipro's old Soviet Metalurh Stadium.

North entrance of the stadium

It staged the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying match between Ukraine and England as the Olimpiysky National Sports Complex in Kiev was being rebuilt ready for UEFA Euro 2012.

The Dnipro-Arena was chosen as a possible venue for UEFA Euro 2012, but was dropped from the list in May 2009. The capacity fell short of the minimum 33,000 seats required by UEFA.[1][2]

Dnipro-Arena hosted the 2009 Ukrainian Cup final, in which Vorskla Poltava beat Shakhtar Donetsk 1–0.

Since the beginning of conflict in Eastern Ukraine, Dnipro have played their European matches at the Olympic Stadium in Kyiv at the behest of UEFA, although there has been comparatively less conflict in Dnipropetrovsk than other areas.
