HistoryEdit

The modern stadium was built at the site of an old multi-purpose stadium of the same name, which was built in the 1930s and used by Gomel until 1999. The stadium was then demolished and completely rebuilt during 1999–2004.

International useEdit

The stadium has been used by Gomel in international (mainly UEFA Europa League) matches. It was also used as a home ground for Belarus national football team on one occasion, which was a UEFA Euro 2008 qualifying match against Luxembourg in October 2007 that ended with 0–1 loss for home team.
