Neman Stadium (Belarusian: Стадыён "Нёман", Russian: Стадион "Неман") is a multi-purpose stadium in Grodno, Belarus. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of Neman Grodno.

History[edit]

The stadium was built in 1963 and was called Krasnoye Znamya Stadium. The name was changed in 1993. The original stadium capacity was 15,000.[1] The stadium was modernized between 2002 and 2008, reducing its capacity to 8,500.

International use[edit]

The stadium has been used by Neman Grodno in international matches. In February 2013, it was used as a home ground by BATE Borisov in a UEFA Europa League match against Turkish side Fenerbahçe, due to unavailability of other stadiums.[2]

The stadium was the home ground for Belarus on one occasion, a 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification match against Andorra in June 2009 which Belarus won 5–1.[3]
