Campo de Futebol Adelino Rodrigues, also known as Campo do Liceu, is a multi-use stadium, mainly used for football, which is located in the city centre of Funchal, on the Portuguese island of Madeira.

The stadium, which has a capacity for approximately 3,000 people in stands based around three sides of the pitch, is mainly used by local football teams such as C.S. Madeira and by the University of Madeira teams. Until 2003, the pitch was made up of earth and clay, before it was revamped and laid with a synthetic astroturf surface.

Since October 2008, the stadium is also used for the home games of C.F. União, having moved from their previous home at the Estádio dos Barreiros.

The ground was the temporary home of Marítimo and Nacional from 1954 until 1957 during the reconstruction of the Estádio dos Barreiros.
