Mika Stadium (Armenian: Միկա Մարզադաշտ) is an all-seater football stadium in Yerevan, Armenia, built between 2006–2007 and opened in 2008. The capacity of the stadium is 7,250 seats[1] and serves as the home ground of FC Mika. The stadium also serves as a regular venue for the Armenia women's national football team.

History

The construction of the stadium started in 2006 on the location of the former Araks Stadium. It was completed in 2008 and hosted the first ever match on 22 May of the same year between the U-19 national teams of Spain and Ukraine. The match ended-up with a 3–1 victory for the Spaniards. The first ever goal in Mika Stadium was scored by the Ukraine U-19 player Andriy Yarmolenko with a penalty kick at the 18th minute of the match.

FC Mika played their first game in the stadium on 8 June 2008 against Kilikia F.C.. Mika won the match 1–0 with Stepan Hakobyan becoming the first ever goalscorer of the club at their new stadium, when he scored the winning goal at the 81st minute of the match.

The stadium is part of Mika Sports Complex, surrounded with many other structures: Mika sports hall, indoor training hall, billiards saloon, fitness centre, chess house, mini-football ground and other facilities.

On 5 November 2011, the FC Mika Museum was opened within the complex.[2]
