The stadium is located on a piece of artificially-created land on the shore of the Black Sea in the Akyazı area, west of Trabzon city center. This remarkable city on the Black Sea coast owes its glory to its lakes, rivers, mountains, and summer ranges in addition to historic and cultural values.

Trabzon is globally acclaimed for the handcrafted silver and gold jewellery designs in addition to folkloric elements including and without limitation, 'horon' (local dance), 'kemence', and 'tulum' (local musical instruments). Trabzon hosted a number of international sports organisations, such as 2007 Black Sea Games, 2011 European Youth Olympic Festival, 2013 FIFA U20 World Cup, and the 'World School Championship', also known as the Gymnasiade, in the summer of 2016. Şenol Guneş Sports Complex is a state-of-the-art facility that serves as a sports and leisure centre for the inhabitants of the city. Trabzonspor plays its home matches in this stadium. Known as the city where green is combined with blue in harmony, Trabzon is one of the most significant tourism and sports centres in Turkey thanks to its cultural richness and variety. Uzungöl
