Regional Sports Complex "Olimpiyskyi" is a multi-purpose stadium in Donetsk, Ukraine, owned by Shakhtar Donetsk. The stadium's maximum capacity is 25,678, and it is used exclusively for football matches. After its reconstruction in 2003, the stadium was also host to Shakhtar's city-rivals, FC Metalurh Donetsk. Shakhtar became the sole tenant of the stadium from 2004, until their new Donbass Arena was completed. FC Metalurh Donetsk has moved back to their own stadium, Metalurh Stadium which is considerably smaller.

From 2013, the stadium hosts Shakhtar Donetsk's matches in the UEFA Youth League, which runs in parallel to the UEFA Champions League.
