HistoryEdit

The stadium was built in 2009 and its initial capacity stood at 5000, all seated. It is the home stadium of the youth squad of Lokomotiv. It was also used by Lokomotiv-2, prior to their disbandment. The stadium was further expanded in the winter of 2010, and as a result nowadays the stadium is capable to hold 10,000 people, all seated. In addition to the expansion, all the four stands were covered under a roof. Such development qualified the Minor Sports Arena Lokomotiv to meet the standards for UEFA competition and thus international and European matches can be played at the small stadium.

On 5 August 2017, Lokomotiv announced that the stadium has been renamed to Sapsan Arena[1]

DescriptionEdit

It is situated adjacent to the main Lokomotiv Moscow stadium, the RZD Arena. Its surface is artificial turf.
