Moldova is set to construct a Category 4 UEFA National Stadium with a capacity of 20,000-25,000 seats, envisioned to host significant sports events. A pre-feasibility study estimates that this endeavor requires an investment of approximately 85 million euros, with an estimated construction period of five years. Among the five potential locations analyzed, the site adjacent to the Chisinau Arena in the vicinity of the Stauceni, Chisinau municipality, emerged as the most favorable option.

Minister of Education and Research Dan Perciun emphasized that the commencement of stadium construction marks a significant milestone symbolizing national unity. He highlighted the stadium’s prospective role in hosting crucial national and international matches and serving as headquarters for national sports federations. In 2023, Moldovan athletes achieved a record medals number, further underscoring the need for enhanced sports infrastructure.

Minister of Infrastructure and Regional Development Andrei Spinu reiterated the government’s commitment to provide a state-of-the-art arena. The stadium aims to epitomize solidarity, courage, and success, meeting the highest UEFA standards and facilitating the hosting of international football competitions.


After rigorous analysis considering various factors such as dimension, legal regime, and accessibility, the site near the Chisinau Arena received the highest score in the pre-feasibility study, signaling its suitability for construction. However, Spinu clarified that this assessment does not represent a final decision, pending the comprehensive feasibility study.

The proposed stadium will span an area of 18,000 square meters, featuring facilities compliant with international standards. Apart from the playing field, spectator stands, and zones for officials and sponsors, the complex will encompass dedicated areas for teams, training, medical facilities, and security.

Moving forward, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Regional Development will initiate the feasibility study to address all aspects of stadium construction. Based on this study, the government will proceed with the designing and construction stages, considering single and separate procurement procedures for each stage.

Leonid Oleinicenco, President of the Moldovan Football Federation, hailed the stadium project as pivotal for the country’s football development, emphasizing its potential to attract sports tourists and elevate Moldova’s status as a football destination.

Prime Minister Dorin Recean announced the National Stadium construction initiative during a visit to the Centre of Training Moldova’s National Teams, underscoring the government’s commitment to advancing sports infrastructure in the country.
