Avanhard Stadium (Ukrainian: Стадіон «Авангард») is an abandoned football stadium in Pripyat, Ukraine. It was the home ground of FC Stroitel Pripyat.[1][2] It was named, like several other grounds, after the Ukrainian sports society trade union. The town of Pripyat was evacuated following the Chernobyl disaster on 26 April 1986, which occurred a few kilometers away.
