Estadio Don León Kolbowski[2] is a multi-use stadium in Villa Crespo, Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is currently used mostly for football matches and hosts the home matches of Club Atlético Atlanta. The stadium is able to hold 14,000 people and was built in 1960.[3]

The stadium was re-opened after 3 years of both an AFA suspension and renovations, on 29 March 2009, after the Buenos Aires Justice department had ordered the stadium to close, due to an altercation between Atlanta and All Boys supporters in a match during 2006. A condition was made that saw the club replace the old wooden terracing before being allowed back.

Atlanta had played their home games at various stadiums, including Platense and Ferro, during this lapse.
