Estádio Campo Desportivo (simplified Chinese: 澳门运动场; traditional Chinese: 澳門運動場; pinyin: Àomén YùndòngchǎngMacau Stadium) is a multi-purpose stadium in Taipa, Macau, China. It was renamed 'Macau Olympic Complex' when the reconstruction of the stadium had been completed.

The Macau Olympic Complex is the largest sporting complex in Macau. It is more often known as the Macau Stadium since it is the largest facility of the complex. The complex comprises a stadium - a grass pitch (105 x 68 m) surrounded by an 8-lane athletic track and a long jump area, a 900-seated indoor stadium, a hockey centre, a practicing track and several tennis courts.

The stadium has been under major overhaul including the reconstruction of the East and West Stand in order to increase its capacity for the 2005 East Asian Games. Prior to reconstruction the West Stand was the only part of the stadium with a roof, with the rest of them being open-air. The renewed stadium now has a capacity of around 16,272.

The Macau Stadium has become the home ground of the Macau football team since its completion and has been a major venue for local athletic and football competitions. After reconstruction it has held several high-profiled friendly matches such as China vs. Portugal in 2002, Barcelona vs. Shenzhen in 2005, Manchester United vs. Shenzhen in 2007, Chelsea F.C. vs. Guangzhou Pharmaceutical.

In general, it is used mostly for football matches and athletics.
