The capital of Kazakhstan was the first city in which a modern football stadium was built. The facility, which can accommodate up to 30 thousand fans of the game of ball, has at its disposal a movable roof system, artificial pitch, and rooms adapted to the matches of world importance. The complex is named after the city in which it was built - Astana Arena.
At once several sports collectives can call this construction theirs:
- Kazakhstan's national football team;
- Kazakhstan's youth soccer team;
- Women's national soccer team of Kazakhstan;
- FC "Astana" (reigning champion of Kazakhstan);
- FC "Baiterek".
The stadium opened on July 3, 2009, and the first match played on the new field was between Astana "Locomotive" and the youth team of Kazakhstan. The game was held under the refereeing of Italian referee Pierluigi Collina, under whose whistle, the president of the Republic Nursultan Nazarbayev struck the first blow to the ball. Today the stadium is the home ground of football clubs Astana, Baiterek and the national team of Kazakhstan.

On the first level, there are 16,000 seats, on the second level there are 14,000 seats and above them, there is a sliding roof with a size of 10,000 km. It can be opened and closed in just 20 minutes. By the way, there are no more than six such structures in the world. From any point of the stands the football field, 105 x 68 meters in size, can be viewed freely. It has an artificial surface, two scoreboards, and lighting according to UEFA requirements.
