Minyor Stadium (Bulgarian: Стадион "Миньор") (nicknamed The Stadium of Peace) is a multi-purpose stadium in Pernik, Bulgaria. It is currently used for football matches and is the home ground of the local football club Minyor Pernik. The stadium has a capacity of 8,000 spectators[1] and it was officially inaugurated on May 30, 1954.[2]

The stadium initially held a capacity of 20,000 spectators, but in August 2009, the owners of the club decided to rebuild the whole western stand, and the capacity was reduced to 8,000 spectators to obtain a license from the Bulgarian Football Union.
