The Dinamo Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in the city of Minsk, Belarus that was mainly constructed as a football stadium, but after several renovations, it is now used as a multi-purpose arena. Initially, the capacity of the stadium was 40,000, but the upper stand was not used for years since the middle of the 1990s, due to safety purpose, reducing the capacity to 34,000. The stadium has gone through several changes during the course of time. It was constructed in 1934 and expanded in 1939. In 2012, the stadium was closed for major reconstruction works and opened again in 2014 as a "soccer-specific stadium".
