"Metalist" Oblast Sports Complex, which includes the Metalist Stadium is a multi-use stadium in Kharkiv, Ukraine. It is currently used chiefly for football matches and is the home of FC Metalist Kharkiv and Shakhtar Donetsk. The stadium, which was a venue for Euro 2012, currently seats 40,003.

After Metalist Kharkiv financially collapsed in May 2016 professional football temporary disappeared from the stadium. Shakhtar Donetsk made the stadium its home stadium in February 2017. 

Construction on the stadium began in 1925 by order of Anastas Mikoyan on the site of the Holy Spirit cemetery. Opened on September 12, 1926, the new stadium was known as "Traktor", as it was then being sponsored by the local tractor production plant. Prior to World War II, the facility was renamed Dzerzhynets Stadium in honor of Felix Dzerzhinsky, the first head of the Cheka. Since 1967, it has borne its present moniker; in that same year, the capacity of the stadium reached 10,000.

Including improvements for Euro 2012, the stadium has undergone four renovations over the course of its history.
Metalist's fourth and last set of renovations was ordered in preparation for Euro 2012. The South Stand was completed and a completely new East Stand was built. Roof replacement, other general modernizations and aesthetic improvements were completed by the end of 2009. On December 5, 2009, the renovated stadium was officially opened on the 50th birthday of Metalist Kharkiv's President, Oleksandr Yaroslavsky.
On 19 December 2010 the Kharkiv City Council asked the Kharkiv Oblast Council to transfer the Metalist Stadium to the municipal ownership of the city. The then new owner of Metalist Serhiy Kurchenko proposed late December 2012 to buy Kharkiv municipal authorities' share in the Metalist Stadium.[6] He did so in August 2013; from then (technically) the stadium owner is Metalist Stadium Sports Complex LLC, which is part of Metalist which is owned by Kurchenko.

After having finished the 2015–2016 Ukrainian Premier League season Metalist Kharkiv ceased operating due to insolvency.
Following the winter break of the 2016–17 season the football club Shakhtar Donetsk moved to the Metalist Stadium.
