SKİF Stadionu – stadium description

Operated by the Azerbaijan State Academy of Physical Education and Sport (ADBTİA), the SKIF stadium is the anciliary training venue for former national stadium. Tofiq Bəkhramov Stadionu is located just a stone's throw away, within the same Olympic complex.

Lying within walking distance from the Gənclik subway station, the stadium offers a full Olympic running track with 8 lanes. Since its last major renovation in 2014 it also is an all-seater. All facilities for athletes are located behind the north stand.

In its career the stadium has enjoyed numerous football episodes, most notably being the interim home of İnşaatçı Baku, winners of Azerbaijan Cup's first edition in 1992. Today it also hosts football games, though mostly of local level.
