Abstract
In preparation for the European championship football finals of 2012, the Ukrainian sporting facilities are currently being expanded through renovation and new construction. The paper focuses on three football stadiums, namely the FC “Shakhtar” stadium in the city of Donetsk, the V. Lobanovsky FC “Dynamo” stadium in the city of Kiev and FC “Dnepr” stadium in the city of Dnepropetrovsk. The structural concept and technical solutions that have been adopted are described. General data regarding the number of spectators, areas under construction and infrastructure is presented. The structural analysis models for the metallic and reinforced concrete structures for the stadiums are presented and a summary of results from numerical and wind tunnel test investigations is provided. Actual results from the fabrication and erection of these structures are also presented.
