Falcon Club Sports and Recreation Complex
(Minsk, 20 Pobediteley Ave.)
The Falcon Club arena will hold the Badminton championships during the 2nd European Games.
Located right by the National Flag square and the Independence Palace at the Pobediteley avenue, Falcon Club is one of the newest and most modern sports and recreation venues in Minsk. It’s opened its doors to the public in 2016.
The complex resembles a falcon soaring with its wings spread and is facing the Pobediteley avenue and the Svisloch river with its two sides. The facade reflects the sun at daytime and lights up by night.
The choice of the outline was no accident - a falcon is the national bird of Qatar and is the symbol of courage in many countries of the Orient. The concept was developed by Oleg Vorobyev, a Belarusian architect.
The complex includes a sports arena, an 8-screen Boutique Cinema multiplex, a tennis and squash academy, a fitness club, a SPA center, a boutique center and a press-centre, bars and restaurants.
The 1980 sq. m arena holds the latest technology for hosting sports and entertainment events: it allows for 3 different types of flooring to be installed, which makes it a good fit for any types of championships excluding hockey.
The area has an LED display and sliding seats which makes it possible to transform the venue for any event. It has a capacity of 2,100 for sports events which extends to 3,500 and further for entertainment events.
The Falcon Club complex also includes a 5-star Minsk Marriott hotel that provides 217 rooms (192 standard rooms and 25 luxury suites), 8 conference rooms, a restaurant, a bar, a banquet hall and a SPA-center.
The unique venue can host all kinds of sports and entertainment events while also being a perfect space for sports, business and leisure.
