Estadio Polideportivo de Pueblo Nuevo is a multi-purpose stadium in San Cristóbal, Venezuela. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home stadium of Deportivo Táchira Fútbol Club. The stadium holds 38,755 people. [1]

It is known as "the sacred temple of football" in Venezuela, for it is in this stadium where Venezuela had some of its best football results, and it lies in the typically football-loving Andes region, which contrasts with much of the country, where baseball is more popular.[citation needed]
