The Rodina Stadium was built in 1967. After the reconstruction in 2007, the total capacity of the stadium was 10033 seats. On May 12, 2017, the Rodina stadium was closed for reconstruction on the eve of the FIFA World Cup 2018. Changing rooms were modernized and a press center for one hundred media representatives was opened.
The most important stage of reconstruction was the replacement of artificial lawn with natural one. The size of the football pitch was brought in line with FIFA standards: 105 by 68 meters.
