Stadion Yuvileiny (Ukrainian: Стадiон Ювiлейний, Russian: Стадион Юбилейный Stadion Yubilejny) is a football-only stadium located at 9 Gagarin street, Sumy, Ukraine 40030. The stadium was built in 1999–2001 in place of previously demolished Spartak Stadium in 1989.

Stadion Yuvileiny is currently used mostly for football matches of the Ukrainian First League, and is a home ground of the former FC Spartak Sumy and the new PFC Sumy. Until 2014 along with Shakhtar Stadium in Donetsk it was the major stadium in the First League.

The ownership of the stadium currently belongs to the city authorities after the partnership owning Spartak went into bankruptcy. The stadium holds 25,830 people and comprises an area of 5.1782 hectares (12.796 acres).

The stadium was used by numbers of Ukrainian Premier League clubs such as FC Kharkiv (2008-09 season) and FC Olimpik Donetsk (from August to December 2016).

History[edit]

The stadium broke ground in late 1999 and in two years was opened. Originally it was constructed for the Spartak Sumy that at that time competed in the Ukrainian First League with the perspective for the club advancing to the national premiers.

According to the official website of PFC Sumy the rate of the stadium's construction was never seen before: "расчетных темпов строительства не знало до сих пор еще ни одно строение". The website also claims that work was conducted without breaks for holidays. The financial support for the construction was given from such big Ukrainian companies as Naftogaz Ukrainy with its "Ukrnafta" and the regional representative in the face of "Okhtyrkanaftogaz".

The territory of the stadium is 1 hectare (2.5 acres), while the constructed territory rounds to 15,960 square metres (171,800 sq ft). The drainage system and the field-heating system was installed by "Eleter" (Kiev), while the stadium lighting is ensured by "Vatra".

The administrative building is 106.4 м by 14.9 м, while the training hall is 164.2 square metres (1,767 sq ft).
