History of the stadium

In 1917, the Executive Committee of Workers' and Deputies issued a decree on the granting of a site for the Cadet Corps to host youth sports games.
Then the first football field appeared. It was drawn by a line in the middle, had penalty areas and a real gate, but without grids. The first football field became a serious impetus to the development of this sport in Voronezh. First, money for viewing amateur matches in a self-made stadium was not taken. The first tickets appeared a little later (in 1924) and cost only 10 kopecks.

But the erection of the arena was somewhat delayed. The first mention of the stadium dates back to the late 1920s. At that time the new sports ground was called "ISPS", on behalf of the owner - the Regional Council of Trade Unions.
By 1930 at the stadium was created only one football field. In 1934, the rest of the infrastructure and tribunes entered service. By the end of the year, an international match was held at the new stadium for the first time. Participants were the team of the Central Black Earth region and football players of Germany. The game ended in a draw.
