Their home arena is Stadion Yunost (Stadion Zhastar in Kazakh), which was supposed to become equipped for artificial ice in 2015,[3] however, the project got delayed.[4] In October 2016, works with the aim of finishing the project started [9]. Therefore, in the season 2016-17 their home arena was Stadion Stenovik in Zashagan (Zachagansk in Russian), a nearby village administered by the city of Oral.[10] By July 2017 the schedule was that the works at Stadion Yunost should be completed before the end of the year.[11] In October the date of opening was pinpointed to the 16th of December.[5] Still the first home matches of the season was played on Stenovik[6] and now it was presumed that Stadion Yunost could not be used before the 2018-19 season.[7] In 2018 it officially was ready for use.[8]

All the players of the Youth-23 national team in the 2013-14 season came from this club.[9]

In September 2017 Kazakhstan Bandy Federation bought the club.[10]

The club colours are yellow, white and blue.[11]
