The Youth Stadium, which was built in 1975, has been in need of repair for many years, and several generations of Chernihiv's young footballers have had to train and play football on a broken field. The issue moved in 2015 on the initiative of the newly elected President of the Ukrainian Football Association Andriy Pavelko. Then the UAF head visited the stadium of Yunost school with a working visit together with Andriy Yarmolenko, talked with his first coach Viktor Lazarenko, the leadership of the regional football federation and representatives of the local authorities. Subsequently, the first design work began, and later - the reconstruction of the object.
