The Shenyang Olympic Sports Center Stadium (simplified Chinese: 沈阳奥林匹克体育中心; traditional Chinese: 瀋陽奧林匹克體育中心; pinyin: Shěnyáng Àolínpǐkè Tǐyù Zhōngxīn) is a 60,000-seat multi-purpose stadium in Shenyang, China.

Nicknamed "Crystal Crown" 水晶皇冠, the stadium was built by AXS Satow[1] as a replacement for Wulihe Stadium. It hosted football matches at the 2008 Summer Olympics.[2] It is the home ground of the Shenyang Dongjin F.C. currently playing in the second Chinese division. In 2013 the stadium was the principal venue of the 12th National Games of the People's Republic of China with the opening and closing ceremonies as well as the main athletic events.[3]

The complex includes a 10,000-seat gymnasium, a 4,000-seat natatorium, and a 4,000-seat tennis field.
