Stadion NTK – stadium description

Today a stadium, but until 2004 just a training field in the background of nearby Olympic Stadium. In 2004 Ukrainian FA decided to expand it into a minor ground of less than 2,000 seats, but with all modern facilities to serve the country’s youth teams.

Apart from young players it also proved very helpful to Premier Liga clubs. In 2005 Obolon moved in while their ground was being redeveloped. Then came more distant FK Lviv and finally Arsenal Kyiv who moved to another venue for 2012/13, making this small stadium a top flight arena for the time being.

The stadium’s name celebrates Viktor Bannikov, once a great goalkeeper for the USSR team and then the initiator and founder of Ukrainian Football Association.
