Rinat Akhmetov ready to purchase Arena Lviv Stadium

Translated by: Christine Chraibi

Due to the ongoing conflict in the Donbas, the football champion of Ukraine, Donetsk Shakhtar, may relocate to western Ukraine.

The newspaper Sportyvka reported that the club had signed a lease for the Arena Lviv Stadium for the next three seasons, but the president of the Donetsk football club, Rinat Akhmetov, is actually thinking of purchasing all rights to the stadium.


The footballers of the “miner’s club” are currently looking for flats in Lviv, while the club is searching for a training base to house the team. However, previous soil inspections and tests of sports fields did not produce positive results.
