Abovyan City Stadium (Armenian: Աբովյանի Քաղաքային Մարզադաշտ) is an all-seater football stadium in Abovyan, Armenia. It was opened in 1966 and has a capacity of 4,000 seats. The stadium which was known as Kotayk Stadium until 2006, used to have a capacity of 5,500 spectators. In 2006, it became owned by Multi Group Holding and turned into an all-seater stadium, reducing the capacity down to 4,000 seats. The new owners of the stadium changed the name into Abovyan City Stadium.
The stadium used to be FC Kotayk Abovian's home ground during the Soviet period and after the independence of the Republic of Armenia. However, when the club was dissolved, the stadium has been used by various Yerevan clubs as a temporary home venue. Currently, the stadium is home to FC Ararat Yerevan of the Armenian Premier League.
The stadium is also the home ground of the Armenia national rugby union team. Between 2005 and 2008, the stadium became home to many victories achieved by the Armenian rugby team with the most recent one over Serbia in 2008, with a result of 25–0.
Currently, the stadium is home the Armenian Premier League team Ulisses FC.
