The Bazaly stadium was a football stadium in Ostrava, Czech Republic. It lay in Slezská Ostrava, the Silesian part of the city, next to the Ostravice River. The first match was played there on 19 April 1959, it functioned as the home stadium of FC Baník Ostrava until the end of the 2014–15 Czech First League season.

The stadium was reconstructed in 2003 (added new seats, new V.I.P. rooms, cloak-rooms and press center). The cost was about 30 mil. CZK, cca. 1mil. EUR), and the pitch was replaced in 2004. In June 2014 a new capacity of 10,039 was announced for the forthcoming season.[1]

Heavy metal band Iron Maiden played at the stadium for a 38,000 capacity crowd on June 6, 2007. It was the biggest rock concert in Ostrava.
