• The home of MFK Dubnica will stage three group games in the UEFA European Under-17 Championship.

• The sports complex to which the stadium belongs was built in 1942 by the local Skoda plant. It is also used for athletics.

• The ground hosted a UEFA EURO 2000 qualifier between Slovakia and Liechtenstein and has also held women's and youth internationals.

• Dubnica, founded in 1926, came to prominence when reaching the Czechoslovak top flight in 1977, remaining for a decade. In 1996 they made the Slovak First League but were a yo-yo club until 2005 when Dubnica finished fourth and earned a European debut in the UEFA Intertoto Cup – only pipped to the UEFA Cup by Newcastle United FC.

• Dubnica nad Vahom, so called because of its location by the Vah river, is home to 25,000 people. It was the setting for a large munitions factory in Czechoslovakian days.
