Alashkert Stadium (Armenian: Ալաշկերտ մարզադաշտ) is a football stadium in Yerevan, Armenia. It was known as Nairi Stadium until 2013 when it was renamed Alashkert by the new owners.[1] The stadium is located in Shengavit district, adjacent to Lake Yerevan, on the left bank of Hrazdan River. It was built in 1960, during the expansion of Shengavit district.

With a capacity of 6,850 spectators, Alashkert Stadium is the home ground of Alashkert FC (formerly based in Martuni) of the Armenian Premier League.[2] It became the property of the club in February 2013.[3]

According to Bagrat Navoyan; the chairman of Alashkert FC, the stadium will be renovated during 2013 and 2014, and will become entirely rebuilt by 2015, with a possible expansion of the capacity up to 10,000.[4]
