HistoryEdit

Stadium "Vostok" is the largest sports facility in Ust-Kamenogorsk. It was inaugurated in 1963. It has a capacity for 8,500 spectators.[1]

It is mainly used for soccer matches, sometimes it is used as a concert venue. It is the home arena for the local soccer team Vostok.[2]

Since 2005, the issue of required repairs due to deterioration has been resolved. In 2010, the Akimat of Ust-Kamenogorsk decided to reconstruct the stadium to meet UEFA standards,[3][4][5] spending 600 million KZT on the reconstruction. In August 2010, new benches were installed in the stands.[3]
