The Estádio da Machava is a multi-purpose stadium in Machava, a mainly residential subdivision of the city of Matola, in the outskirts of Maputo, Mozambique. It is used for football matches and can hold 45,000 spectators.[1]

The stadium was built by the Portuguese colonial government of Mozambique and inaugurated as Estádio Salazar, named after the Portuguese dictator António de Oliveira Salazar, on 30 June 1968 with a match between Portugal and Brasil, which the latter, formally the visitors, won 2:0.[2]

It is now owned by Clube Ferroviário de Maputo.
