Baku Olympic Stadium (Azerbaijani: Bakı Olimpiya Stadionu), is a stadium, designed and constructed to meet the international standards for stadiums set by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) and the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF). It is the largest stadium in Azerbaijan.

Construction of the 225,000-square-meter stadium on a 650,000-square-meter site was completed in February 2015. The six-storey, 65.7 meter structure near Boyukshor Lake, Baku, Azerbaijan, opened on 6 March 2015. The main tenant of the stadium is Azerbaijan's national football team, who moved from their previous home at the Tofiq Bahramov Republican Stadium. In June 2015 the stadium served as the main venue for the European Games, hosting the opening and closing ceremonies, and the athletic games. The venue is hosting three group games and a quarterfinal at the UEFA Euro 2020. A green area is being developed around the stadium, which is accessible via public transport.

  • We had visited the stadium from outside only as part of our city tour. The building looks amazing and the lighting effect also makes it quite attractive. Overall, a nice place.

  • The best stadium in the whole Caucasus hands down. I've attended many events and can say that the service is at least as good as the stadium itself. The only issue is that it's an Olympic stadium and you sit far from the pitch which is not perfect for football matches.
  • Big stadium. Butin not so comfortable place. Wery cold and windy :(
