Eduard Streltsov Stadium, formerly Torpedo Stadium, is a multi-purpose stadium in Moscow, Russia. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of Torpedo Moscow.

The stadium was built in 1959. It had very modest facilities at the time and was used as a training ground by Torpedo Moscow. At present the stadium holds 13,450 people.

The stadium is named after Eduard Streltsov, a Soviet footballer who played for Torpedo Moscow. In 2018, the stadium returned the name "Torpedo".[1]

The stadium is demolished in 2022 and will be rebuilt. At its completion in 2024, it will hold 15,076 people.[2]
