Description: Stadion Dinama
Contrary to plans announced in late 2012, the old Stadion Dinama will retain its athletic track and the capacity will be decreased to some 20,000. After international competition in late 2012 it was planned to convert it to football-only with 40,000 seats.
The new idea was presented by local architectural practice UP Minskproekt in late 2013. It’s expected to save the historical arcades just like the previous vision, but instead of significant height increase, the stadium will only get a new elliptical cover. The west side will also boast extensive training facilities for athletes and new corporate hospitality spaces.
As the demolition of old stands began in early 2013, the construction process should be launched in spring 2014. Delivery is planned in time to host the 2019 European Youth Olympic Festival.
New stadium: Dinamo reborn
One of the most interesting combinations of old and new. Historic arcades are topped by fresh alminium dome. Instead of football-specific, as was planned initially, it's a brand new athletic stadium and quite impressive one too, as proven by hosting rights for the 2nd European Games.
Belarus: 40,000-seater announced for Minsk
President Alexander Lukashenko has confirmed that a second national stadium will be built in the capital of Belarus, twice the capacity of the first one. This time only for football.
Minsk: National stadium ready, opening on June 22
Structurally it's been complete since March, now all installation works are done too. On June 22 the new national stadium of Belarus will open its doors to the public, though not without controversy.
Belarus: Is the second national stadium still planned?
Had everything gone as planned, it would be complete in just 8 months. But as things stand, there's not even a complete design and very little is clear about the stadium. Except that it's still planned.
Belarus: Stadion Dinama structurally complete
Just two months before (re)scheduled delivery all major works are delivered at Stadion Dinama in Minsk. The host of 2019 European Games was visited by the EOC and authorities are pleased with progress.
Belarus: Minsk national stadium significantly behind schedule
It was due for delivery in December but in reality won't be ready until May or June. Over 1,000 people remain at the construction site as race against time continues.
Minsk: Stadion Dinama will be ready in a year
As we’re over 2.5 years since groundbreaking, national stadium of Belarus will remain under construction for 12 more months.
Belarus: Reconstruction of Stadion Dinama well ahead of schedule
Redevelopment works are progressing much faster than initially expected in Minsk, where the old Stadion Dinama will be reopened in 2017. Original timeline suggested readiness in 2019.
Minsk: Dinamo stadium reconstruction to end in 2019?
Carrying it out in previously anticipated time frame is already impossible. But delivering Stadion Dinama for 2019 is “a matter of honor” for Belarus, assistant president assures.
