Black Sea Stadium

Black Sea Stadium, Ch.M.P (Чорноморец Стадион, ЧМП)
Shevchenko Park (Парк Шевченко)
Tel: 25-15-09

This stadium was built in 1936 and can seat 50,000.

The north and west side stands are built on earth mounds that once formed part of the Suvorov fortress. Every year the Humor day parade, that runs along Deribasovskaya (Дерибасовская), ends up here and a huge celebration takes place.

At the main entrance, on the right side, is a plaque that reads:
