Malaya Sportivnaya Arena – stadium description

Called simply the small arena, it's one of three (!) stadia within the Sheriff complex, built between 2000 and 2003. The area of 40 hectares also hosts 9 training fields and a medical center, becoming one of the most impressive in this part of Europe.

Small arena was the second piece of the complex to be opened, just two months after the main stadium. It could well be adjusted to meet highest UEFA criteria, but there is no need for that as it's only the secondary stadium. Still, it boasts almost 9,000 seats, fully-equipped press and hospitality areas and a 6-lane running track, making it the best athletic stadium in Moldova.
