Estádio Ismael Benigno, also known as Estádio da Colina, is a multi-use stadium in Manaus, Brazil. It is currently used mostly for football matches. The stadium has a capacity of 10,400 people.

The Estádio Ismael Benigno is owned by São Raimundo Esporte Clube. The stadium is named after Ismael Benigno, who was a president of São Raimundo in the 1950s and in the 1960s, and is the one who bought the groundplot where the stadium was built.
