It is the home ground of football club Real Pharma Odesa and RC Kredo-63. Was temporary home ground of Chornomorets of the Ukraine Premier League while their home stadium is under reconstruction for Euro 2012.
The stadium was opened in 1928 as a dedication to the 10th anniversary of the Komsomol and was considered the most modern stadium in the city at the time seating 10,000 spectators.
After World War II Kharchovyk Odessa (predecessor to Chornomorets) played in the stadium for two years (1945–46).
The stadium was in decline and there were attempts in the 1970s to demolish the ground. In the 1980s a pervasive effort was made to reconstruct the ground. Two new stands were built and capacity was reduced to 6,000.
The stadium is also a venue for games involving amateur teams from Odessa and its region.
