Description: Novy Nacyjanalny Futbolny Stadion
Because the Dinamo Stadion design has changed, so have the plans for Dinamo Minsk. The club is now expected to leave the national stadium, which will be transformed into a 20,000-capacity athletic venue.
The club plan a new 30,000-capacity football-specific ground in south-eastern Minsk, right beside the old Stadion Traktor. Its angular outer form with large LED facade was proposed by GMP Architekten, but may be subject to major changes as design works progress.
The stadium is expected to become the new national one for football and the home of Dinamo. As estimated by private company Tripla, the stadium may cost some €100 million, though that sum is only approximate for now.
Tripla and Dinamo Minsk are both owned by Yuri Chyzh, Belarus’s second richest businessman. The vision is expected to be put forward as Belarusian bid for Euro 2020. This means it requires no less than 30,000 seats and needs to go under construction no later than in 2016.
