Estadio Rodrigo Paz Delgado, commonly called La Casa Blanca (Spanish for "The White House"), is a football stadium in Quito, Ecuador that is the home ground of LDU Quito. Built between 1995 and 1997, the stadium hosted its first match on March 6, 1997 in a game between LDU Quito and Atlético Mineiro of Belo Horizonte. With a capacity of 41,575, it is the largest stadium in Quito, and the second largest in Ecuador after the Estadio Monumental Banco Pichincha in Guayaquil.
Since its inauguration, the stadium has been home to LDU Quito's greatest period of success where it has won six national titles and four international titles, thus making Liga Deportiva Universitaria the most successful team in the history of Ecuadorian football. In addition, Barcelona SC has never been able to defeat Liga at this stadium.
