Banants Stadium (Armenian: Բանանց Մարզադաշտ) is an all-seater football stadium in the Malatia-Sebastia District of Yerevan, Armenia. The stadium is home to FC Banants and has a capacity of 5,010 seats.[1]

History[edit]

The construction of the stadium was launched in 2006 with the assistance of the FIFA goal programme. It was officially opened in 2008 with a capacity of 3,600 seats. Further dvelepmonets were implemented later in 2011, when the playing pitch was modernized and the capacity of the stadium was increased up to 5,010 seats (2,810 at the northern stand, 1,565 at the southern stand and 635 at the western stand).

The stadium is part of the Banants football training academy, including 3 regular-sized training fields as well as 3 mini-football grounds.
