The Chulalongkorn University Stadium, formerly Charusathian Stadium, is a multi-purpose stadium owned by Chulalongkorn University in Pathumwan, Bangkok, Thailand. It is on Chulalongkorn Soi 9 in Pathumwan in the centre of Bangkok and holds 20,000. It is currently used mostly for football matches and to host intra- and inter-university sports competitions the student body participates in. The stadium is the current home of Chamchuri United F.C. of the Thai League 4, and previously served as the home stadium for the now defunct BBCU F.C. (formerly known as Chulalongkorn University F.C., Chula-Sinthana F.C. or Chula United).

In 2005, the stadium was renovated and became the first sports stadium in Thailand to be fitted with artificial turf.[1]

Other stadiums in Bangkok include National Stadium, Rajamangala National Stadium, the Thai Army Sports Stadium and the Thai-Japanese Stadium.
