Due to the armed attack by Russia, Ukrainian clubs cannot play international matches on their territory. For this reason, Shakhtar, who had a guaranteed participation in the Champions League, had to find a replacement stadium. The club from Donetsk has signed a lease agreement for home matches in the group stage of the Champions League with Legia from Warsaw.

– To our great regret, Shakhtar cannot play his home games in the European competition in Ukraine yet, so we decided to play the Champions League group stage matches in Warsaw. I would like to thank the management of Legia for the fact that the club met our needs and concluded a contract with us. We count on the support of Shakhtar’s fans, Warsaw residents and Ukrainians currently staying in the capital of Poland and other cities – admitted Shakhtar’s general director, Serhiy Palk, quoted by the official Legia website.
