Cultural Sports Complex Nika Stadium is a football stadium in the city of Oleksandria, Ukraine. The stadium was rebuilt in 1998 in place of Shakhtar Stadium[1] under a new name Nika.

The stadium is the home ground of Ukrainian Premier League club PFC Oleksandria and has a capacity of 7,000 spectators.

Before 1992 as Shakhtar Stadium, it was a home ground of another football club Shakhtar Oleksandriya. FC Oleksandriya that in 1991-2003 was known as FC Polihraftekhnika played about 4 games in the 1992 Ukrainian First League before it was forced to move to its newly built Olimp Stadium (25 May 1991[1]). After Shakhtar Oleksandriya became defunct in 1990s, the stadium was rebuilt into the Cultural Sports Complex "Nika" and reopened in 1998. In 1998 Polihraftekhnika returned to the stadium.

Between 2004–2006 MFK Oleksandria played their home games also at the stadium.

Seventy percent of the seating is under cover.[1] The main stadium has administration offices as well as a conference hall.[1]
