The Estadio Municipal Campeones del 36 is a multi-use stadium in Sullana, Peru. It is used by the football team Alianza Atlético. The stadium holds 8,000 people and was built in 2000. It is a small stadium that is planned to be expanded.

The venue name, Champions of 1936, is misleading. No Peruvian League was actually played in 1936 as the national team was preparing itself to compete in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Germany. Alianza Atlético did, however, win a special national tournament (representing their home state, Piura) governed by the Peruvian Football Federation, and the name stuck despite not being recognized officially as national champions thereafter.
