While Olympiyskyi Stadium may be where Dynamo Kyiv plays most of its matches, Dynamo Stadium is the team’s true home. While most games are at the larger stadium, the team still occasionally frequents its home stadium, which also hosts Dynamo press facilities and a small museum. The venue has hosted major events like the 2018 Women’s Champions League final and regularly hosts games for Kyiv’s other Premier League teams, including FC Kolos and Arsenal Kyiv. The site is also home to Olimpic Donetsk and serves as a secondary home to Ukraine’s national and U-21 football teams. The stadium is named after legendary Dynamo Kyiv and USSR national team coach Valeriy Lobanovskyi, whose monument rests just outside the stadium entrance. Located near the Verkhovna Rada, the entrance was a site of major battles during the 2014 Revolution of Dignity. See if you can find the monument to the apocryphal ‘Death Match’ – one of the trickier additions to add to your ‘Kyiv monuments’ collection.
