Regional Sports Complex "Olimpiyskyi" stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Donetsk, Ukraine, owned by sports complex Olimpiyskyi and National Olympic Committee of Ukraine. It has a capacity of 25,678 people.[1] In 2014 the stadium's ownership has changed.

Built in 1958 as part of whole Lokomotyv sports complex, originally it belonged to the Soviet Lokomotiv sports society. The stadium was built for the Donets Railway main football team that since 1948 played in Artemivsk (Bakhmut).

After its reconstruction in 2003, the stadium was also host to Shakhtar's city-rivals, FC Metalurh Donetsk. Shakhtar became the sole tenant of the stadium from 2004, until their new Donbass Arena was completed. FC Metalurh Donetsk has moved back to their own stadium, Metalurh Stadium which is considerably smaller.
