Altay Alsancak Stadium, (Turkish: Altay Alsancak Stadı) was a multi-purpose stadium in İzmir, Turkey but was used mostly for football matches. The stadium held 15,358 and was built in 1929.[1] In 1959 it hosted Turkey's first-ever premiere league game. The stadium was partially owned by Altay SK. Due to safety concerns during a potential earthquake, the stadium was demolished in July 2015.[2]

A new 15,000 capacity stadium is currently under construction on the site of the old stadium, and is expected to be complete in 2019.[3]
