Central Stadium (Belarusian: Цэнтральны стадыён, Russian: Центральный стадион) is a football-specific stadium in Gomel, Belarus. It is currently used as a home ground of Gomel. The stadium is all-seater and has a capacity of 14,307 people.[1] The stadium was opened in 2004.

History[edit]

The modern stadium was built at the site of an old multi-purpose stadium of the same name, which was built in the 1930s and used by Gomel until 1999. The stadium was then demolished and completely rebuilt during 1999–2004.

International use[edit]

The stadium has been used by Gomel in international (mainly UEFA Europa League) matches. It was also used as a home ground for Belarus national football team on one occasion, which was a UEFA Euro 2008 qualifying match against Luxembourg in October 2007 that ended with 0–1 loss for home team.
