Arena Lviv opened in 2011 with a capacity of 34,915. The stadium officially opened on the 29th October 2011 with a theatrical show, with the first football match a couple of weeks later between Ukraine and Austria with the hosts winning the friendly 2-1.
The stadium was one of eight used for UEFA Euro 2012 which was co-hosted by Poland and Ukraine. Three group matches were played there – Germany defeating Portugal 1-0 and then two of Denmark’s matches – with the Danes losing 3-2 to Portugal and 2-1 to Germany.
Arena Lviv has struggled to find a permanent tenant during its existence – FC Karpaty Lviv originally played their during the 2011-2012 season but returned to Stadion Ukrayina due to the lease price. Shakhtar Donetsk played their home matches in Lviv from 2014 to 2016 due to the ongoing war in the Donbas region that forced them away from Donbass Arena. FC Lviv became tenants in 2018 with FC Rukh Lviv following suit in 2020.
