Time left for the first
match at "Dinamo"
The mixed-use hockey arena that is being constructed as part of VTB Arena park project under the same roof with the Dynamo Central Stadium named after Lev Yashin will have the name of a great coach Arkady Chernyshev. The document to this effect was signed Thursday by Andrei Peregoudov, Project Manager of VTB Arena park, VTB Bank Senior Vice President, and Boris Chernyshev, son of Arkady Chernyshev.
From now on the full official name of the ice arena will be as follows: “Hockey arena named after Arkady Chernyshev”. It will become a constituent part of the sports complex VTB Arena – Dynamo Central Stadium and will accommodate 11.5 thousand people. This ice arena will easily transform into a basketball court and its capacity will be increased with the help of transformable stands to reach 13 thousand people.
In July 2015 the management of the project signed an agreement with Valentina Yashina to give the stadium the name of her spouse, a great goalkeeper Lev Yashin.
Andrei Peregoudov, “We are glad that on the Moscow sport map there will be a sports complex with the name immortalizing the great sportsmen: Lev Yashin and Arkady Chernyshev. Once again we thank their relatives for their support and cooperation. We believe that on the renovated arenas Dynamo sportsmen will have new achievements and will continue the victorious traditions of their great predecessors.”
Boris Chernyshev, “All the life of my father, of our family is related to Dynamo. I am proud that now the hockey arena will be named after my father, who was wholehearted and constant in his devotion to the native society. I hope this arena will be lucky for Dynamo sportsmen and will bring the joy of new big victories for fans.”
VTB Arena park is a project of complex territory development that includes the construction of the Multifunctional Sports and Concert/Entertainment Complex (VTB Arena and Dynamo Central Stadium), the Dynamo Sports Academy, Arena Park residential area and the Dynamo Sports Park. The area of the project under construction is about 32 ha.
Boris Chernyshev accompanied by Valentina Yashina and Vladimir Pilguy visited the construction site of the stadium and arena. According to the established tradition, as part of the campaign “Let’s Build the Stadium Together”, Boris Chernyshev signed a memorable brick that would be laid at the base of the Dynamo Museum wall. Previously such bricks had been signed by Dynamo veterans, Valentina Yashina, Dynamo fans, Dynamo management. Boris Chernyshev put the signature of his father and wrote the text: “May victories be yours, our dear Dynamo club!”
The Dynamo Central Stadium undergoes the largest reconstruction in its history. The Dynamo Central Stadium will be able to accommodate about 27 thousand people. In its place there will be a Sports and Concert/Entertainment Complex that will comprise the Dynamo Central Stadium named after Lev Yashin, the mixed-use arena, the recreation and entertainment center, the Dynamo Society Museum and an underground parking.
The first match at the renovated stadium is planned for 22 October 2017, the birthday of Lev Yashin.
