The Boris Paichadze National Stadium, also known as the Dinamo Stadium, is a football stadium in Tbilisi, Georgia. It is the home stadium of FC Dinamo Tbilisi . The stadium was built in 1976 by Georgian architect Gia Kurdiani. Before then Dinamo's stadium was a smaller ground with a maximum capacity of 35 000. The demand for a new, bigger stadium was increased because of the successful performance of Dinamo Tbilisi. When the new stadium was built, it had the third largest capacity in the Soviet Union. It could hold 78,000 supporters and fulfill all standards and requirements of Soviet Football Federation as well as UEFA.
