Estadio Multiusos de San Lázaro is a multi-purpose stadium in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. It is used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of SD Compostela. It has a capacity of 13,000 and the pitch dimensions are 105 by 68 metres (344 ft × 223 ft).

Situated in the eastern suburb of San Lázaro, the stadium is a multi-purpose arena, used primarily for the football matches. The stadium is oval in shape and has terracotta-coloured roof that rises on the west side to incorporate the directors seating and press facilities on a second tier. The pitch is surrounded by a 400 m athletics track, which is relatively uncommon in Spanish stadiums. The majority of the 14,000 seats are incorporated on a single, covered tier.

The inaugural match took place on 24 June 1993, when a four-way tournament was staged, featuring Deportivo de La Coruña, CD Tenerife, CA River Plate and São Paulo FC. Deportivo and River Plate played in the first match and Bebeto had the honour of scoring the first goal.
