Thuwunna Youth Training Centre Stadium (Burmese: သုဝဏ္ဏ လူငယ် လေ့ကျင့်ရေး ကွင်း is a multi-use stadium, located in Yangon, Myanmar. The 32,000-seat stadium is smaller but more up-to-date than Aung San Stadium, and is the venue of choice for most national and international level football and track and field competitions. The stadium's eight-lane runway is the first in Myanmar that conforms to the international (IAAF) standards.[1]

It is currently being upgraded to a seating capacity of 50,000 spectators. [2]

Thuwunna National Indoor Stadium, located next to the outdoor stadium, is the country's primary venue for indoor sports.

The stadium hosted 2013 AFC U-22 Asian Cup qualification Group G matches from 23 June to 3 July 2012. It will also host the qualification stage for the 2012 AFF Suzuki Cup.
