Sapsan Arena is a football stadium in Moscow, Russia.

History[edit]

It is situated adjacent to the main Lokomotiv Moscow stadium, the Lokomotiv Stadium in Cherkizovo. The stadium was built in 2009 and its initial capacity stood at 5000, all seated. It is the home stadium of the youths of Lokomotiv. It was also used by Lokomotiv-2, prior to their disbandment. Its surface is of artificial turf.

The stadium was further expanded in the winter of 2010, and as a result nowadays the stadium is capable to hold 10,000 people, all seated. In addition to the expansion, all the four stands were covered under a roof. Such development qualified the Minor Sports Arena Lokomotiv to meet the standards for UEFA competition and thus international and European matches can be played at the small stadium.
