Trelawny Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Trelawny, Jamaica that was completed in 2007. It has a capacity of 25,000 people.[1] It was built under an agreement between Jamaica and the People's Republic of China, that saw the PRC Government put up at least US$30-million needed for the project.[2]

It will mostly be used for cricket. The stadium hosted warm-up matches during the 2007 Cricket World Cup, as well as the opening ceremony of the championship,[1] but has not hosted an official international cricket match.

The stadium has also been used for Jamaica's national football team as a second venue. The Reggae Boyz played a World Cup qualifier here against the Bahamas in 2008 and some Caribbean Cup matches were held there.
