Dinamo Tbilisi's former stadium was the Central Stadium. But the capacity of the stadium was not much that time. Thus, the demand for a bigger stadium gave rise to the construction of Boris Paichadze Stadium in 1976. It was the third largest stadium in Soviet Russia at that time with a capacity of 74,354.
The stadium had a record attendance of 110,000 in 1979 when FC Dinamo Tbilisi beat Liverpool 3-0 to reach the quarter-final of the European Champions Cup. This is also the maiden stadium in Soviet Russia with the highest average attendance (65000/game).
