Stadium and football school[edit]

At the beginning phase of the 2018–19 Armenian Premier League season, the club used the Mika Stadium as their home ground until matchday 8, when they were forced to leave the ground due to the inappropriate pitch conditions. Between matchday 9 and 14 they played at the Pyunik Stadium before moving to the artificial-turf pitch of the Dzoraghbyur Training Centre at the eastern outskirts of Yerevan. The training sessions of the team are carried out at the Pyunik Training Centre, with some sessions being hosted by the Alashkert Stadium as well as the Dzoraghbyur Training Centre.
