The National Olympic Stadium "Dynamo" is the main sports arena of Belarus, and the main arena of the Belarusian football team as well.
The stadium was built in 1934 on the site of an old Jewish cemetery, and was reconstructed in 1939. During World War II, it was almost completely destroyed and rebuilt in 1954.
During preparation for the matches of the football tournament of the 1980 Summer Olympics, the stadium underwent a major renovation. Its territory was expanded and fenced with a new fence with the symbols of the Olympics-80. A modern central tribune was built, new large lighting masts with powerful searchlights, a new football scoreboard, and a torch bowl for the Olympic flame were installed.
In 1999 another reconstruction of the stadium was carried out: its bench seats were replaced with seats, so the capacity decreased from 50,000 to 34,000.
The last reconstruction of the stadium began in 2012: it lasted 6 years until May 2018. At the first stage, the builders dismantled part of the stands, reduced the number of spectator seats to 22,246, created new premises for athletes, judges, the coaching staff, and a conference room.
The lighting system combines about 400 LED spotlights on four lighting masts (each is 68 meters high and weighs 120 tons). Under the canopy there are additional devices, sound systems and video surveillance.
Today at the disposal of athletes treadmills: 9 in the main and 4 in the training arena, resistant to UV and weather conditions.
The field is 105x68 m, covered with natural grass and allows football matches to be held at the stadium. The territory is divided into sectors for athletics competitions - jumps, shot put, throwing a spear, a disc and a hammer.
At the second level of the western tribune, a media center is open, designed for 200 places. Next to it is a storage room for photographic equipment (300 cells), two rooms for large photo agencies and newspapers, a workshop for repairing cameras and equipment, as well as a cozy press bar (40 seats).
To provide guests with mobile communications during the events, the specialists installed 32 antennas under the arena dome and more than 260 additional indoor in the premises. The system operates with UMTS and GSM communication standards, supports LTE technology, as well as provides 4G subscribers with the support.
Along the perimeter of the stands there are 58 food points. For automobilists there are parking places: 137 - in the underground garage and more than 350 - in parking lots along the fence and in the surrounding streets.
