Mubarak International Stadium (Arabic: ستاد مبارك الدولي‎) is an all-seated association football stadium in Suez, Egypt. Completed in 2009 the stadium has a capacity of 45,000 people. It hosted matches from Group C in the FIFA U-20 World Cup, and was used up until the quarter-finals of the competition.[1] Its name may change as a result of the Egyptian revolution on the 25th of January of 2011, which removed Hosni Mubarak from being the president of Egypt.
