The Peoria Sports Complex is a baseball complex located in Peoria, Arizona, a suburb of Phoenix, near Peoria's main shopping district on Bell Road. It consists of the main baseball stadium (Peoria Stadium) and twelve practice fields. It is one of five facilities to host Arizona Fall League games.

During spring training, it is the home stadium of both the San Diego Padres and the Seattle Mariners, who play in the spring training Cactus League. Both teams are leased to hold spring training there through the year 2034.[2]

The complex has also been the site of the Vans Warped Tour every summer since 2002.
