Manisa 19 Mayis Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Manisa, Turkey. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of Süper Lig team Akhisar Belediyespor and TFF Second League team Manisaspor.

The stadium is named after the date 19 May 1919 when Mustafa Kemal Atatürk set foot on land in Samsun to start the Turkish national independence movement.

With the promotion of Manisaspor to the Turkish Süper Lig at the end of the 2008–09 season, the stadium underwent renovation, boosting the capacity from 14,280 to 16,597.[1]
